On 9/26-9/27th, Google will be hosting Google Games Campus Edition and a host of events on campus for you to learn more about Google and hear from Googlers that graduated from Oberlin. The deets are below and how to register (only need to register once). Hope to see you there!


Imposter Syndrome + Q&A (9/26, 12:30pm)

What: “I totally lucked out getting in.” “They made a mistake letting me in.” “I can’t do this.” Hear from Googlers on what imposter syndrome is, why it’s important to address and how to overcome it. Swag will be provided while it lasts!

Where: King 243


Resume Workshop + Live Technical Interview Demonstration (9/26, 6:30pm)

What: What does Google look for in a technical resume? What does a technical interview look like? Get your questions answered by 2 Google alums from Oberlin and see a live mock demonstration of a technical interview by our very own engineers. Bring questions and swag will be provided while it lasts!

Technical Talk on Google Chrome (9/27, 12pm)

What: This talk, given by a Google Chrome security engineer, will discuss the security model of Google Chrome, a popular web browser built from the open source Chromium project. Learn about Chrome’s key principles (Speed, Security, Stability, Simplicity), as well as how the security team uses isolation mechanisms to keep your computer safe while you browse the internet. Attendees will learn, through interactive examples, how to isolate their own applications with sandboxing technologies.
