I’m happy to announce that this past weekend was the the 2015 SASE Northeast Regional Conference. The Conference was held at Boston University over Valentine’s Day weekend, and it consisted of many helpful workshops and networking opportunities.Some of the personal skills workshop include case studies with Accenture, professional presentation, rapid product development, and project management. Also this time, we were very fortunate to have the keynote speaker Wayne Chang to speak at the conference. Wayne Chang is a entrepreneur who currently serve as the Head of Product Marketing and Growth Strategy for Mobile Platform at Twitter. At the end of the conference, you get the opportunity to network with corporate sponsors such as GE, Accenture, Lattice, P&G, Draper Laboratory, and many others. Other events like resume marathon and career panels were also going at the same time. Schools in the same region include Penn, Drexel, Rutgers, Stevens Institute of Technology, MIT.
One of the most important aspects of the regional conference was onsite interviews. At the National Conference last fall, a couple of our members receive onsite interviews and one of them received an internship offer from them. Overall, it was supposed to be a very helpful experience. However, due to weather issues (snowstorm) in Boston. SASE at Lehigh decided to cancel the trip in concern of member safety.
