Build skills, win prizes, have fun!
A virtual hackathon offers a great way to develop and present your ideas and skills to employers. It allows you to collaborate as a team and yet compete against other participating teams on an equal plane.
A hackathon typically allows you to select from a number of different themes ranging from technical / coding topics to socio-economic topics (e.g. climate change, diversity, etc. ) and entrepreneurship. These events usually require you to commit 6-12 hours a day over 3-5 days for problem solving, mentoring, workshops and keynote sessions. Most hackathons allow students to pitch on the final day and win prizes. Overall, hackathons offer a great way to build your skills and networks over a short period of time (3-5 days) in an intense, fast and fun environment!
