Top Reasons to Attend a Hackbright Academy Info Session

Thinking of applying to Hackbright Academy's Software Engineering Fellowship, but still have burning questions? Then join us for an upcoming Info Session. If you can't be there in person, don't worry: you can tune into our livestream to receive the same information.

Even if you've read the whole Hackbright website, there are a few really great reasons to attend:

  • See our awesome instructors in action. The same instructors who teach our students will provide an overview of the fellowship curriculum and describe a day in the life of a Hackbright fellow, giving you a chance to see their teaching style.


  • Find out what the admissions process is like, straight from our Admissions Director. She'll answer the most common admissions questions we receive from prospective fellows and provide useful tips for your application and interviews.


  • Get the inside scoop from fellowship grads. Some of our fantastic alums will share their experiences during the program and talk about life as a software engineer after Hackbright. For the in-person session, you'll also have a chance to chat with them directly, and if you're remote, you can submit questions online.


  • Discover the career opportunities available to Hackbright alumnae from our Director of Career Services. Our staff will give you details on the career services Hackbright offers, the network you'll join as a Hackbright grad, and all the companies we partner with including Eventbrite, Dropbox, and GoDaddy!


  • Learn how the mentorship aspect of Hackbright works. Early in the program, Hackbright Software Engineering fellows are matched with engineers at leading tech companies like Google and Twitter, and our staff will tell you all about the benefits.


Ultimately, there's no better way to learn about Hackbright Academy and our mission than by listening to our awesome staff and wonderful alums describe it. After absorbing all that information, our hope is that you'll be 100% ready to decide to #changetheratio of women in tech through Hackbright.
