Agile Bootcamp #1
02/18/2020 05:30 PM
2000 vsc

Location: MUB 338/340

Regardless of industry, EVERY company needs to be innovative and more of them are turning to Agile methods to drive their Innovation process. That means YOU need have an understanding of how Agile accelerates the innovation process as well. Get a jump start to help you with your own idea innovation or showcase that you understand the process in your next interview!

The Agile Manifesto came about at a ski resort in Utah, not in a college dorm or a Silicon Valley garage. The story seems pretty entrepreneurial to us!

Agility means flexibility with purpose. An Agile mindset requires customer feedback, regular iterations, good design, and motivated people. Agile principles and practices don’t just benefit companies like Apple, Microsoft, Spotify, IBM, and Bottomline Technologies, but they can be learned and applied by ANYONE with a desire to deliver quality solutions in rapidly evolving business environments.

Join us with our partner, Bottomline Technologies, as they lead this highly anticipated bootcamp. The team includes Jim Starrett (VP Enterprise Program Management), Michelle Lee (Project Manager), and Jenna Pitoscia (Enterprise Trainer) of Bottomline Technologies.

As always, ECenter Bootcamps are HANDS-ON, so you will walk away knowing you really learned by doing. Register NOW for an interactive, fun and competitive session around Agile concepts and their application!

If you have a dietary restriction please email e.center@unh.edu as soon as possible.

Please note, the event may be video recorded.

Start-up and High Growth Career Fair
03/09/2020 06:00 PM
1000 vsc

Location: MUB Strafford Room

UNH E-Club’s Start-Up & High-Growth Company Career Fair Details

A career fair like no other you have been to at UNH!   

Co-sponsored by UNH Entrepreneurship Center (ECenter)UNH Entrepreneurship Club (student organization), and Career and Professional Success (CaPS).

You have the skill sets start-up and high-growth companies want in their hires: marketing, sales, finance, software development, customer service, and specific skills that relate to your major and their company focus. Start-up and high-growth companies are looking to hire students who are proven problem solvers, innovators, and have been engaged in these areas at UNH.

Why work at a start-up or high-growth company? 

1.      They pay!

2.      They have fast-paced and fun environments

3.      Usually, your career can progress faster as the company grows faster

4.      Generally, you can get more levels of responsibility due to the fact that start-ups/high-growth companies often need their employees to wear “multiple hats”  

5.      Start-ups look to hire talent in every category, but they’re flexible enough to see talent in people who don’t fit into a specific skill category—and find a role for that talented person

FREE! Come to UNH’s SECOND ANNUAL UNH E-Club's Start-up & High-Growth Company Career Fair on March 9 in the MUB Strafford Room.

BONUS: There will be raffles for cool swag and gift certificates 

WE NEED YOU TO BE A JUDGE: All companies will get on stage and give a “1-minute pitch” about the company and who they are looking to hire. ALL STUDENTS will vote on which start-up has the best pitch.  

Be a part of the innovative and entrepreneurship story at UNH and join us at the UNH E-Club's Start-Up & High-Growth Company Career Fair on March 9th.
