Expert panelists – including our own Alan Saw, Director of Technology – will be on hand to talk about preparing for and excelling in technical interviews. The panel, made up of some of Canada’s leading technologists, will discuss what they look for in applicants, what impresses them, and how best to showcase your skills.

You’ll learn how to plan and prepare for a technical interview, what crucial steps you need to take in order to build your portfolio, what key traits hiring managers are looking for and how best to set yourself apart from the competition.

Additionally, there will be tips on how to speak confidently and get your message across, a look at standard interview questions and advice on how to approach them.

Alan is an experienced technical manager who recently recruited six new members to Trulioo’s development team, and he is excited to be included on the panel.

“I’m very much looking forward to taking part and entering into some important discussions,” he said. “I truly believe in hiring candidates with great attitude and high potential, and empowering each and every new hire with the tools and authority they need to succeed and take our company to the next level.”
