About this event

With the industry booming and fresh talent flooding the job market daily, the gap between education and employment has never been more evident. How can managers mentor junior hires to maximum effectiveness?

Hiring talent can be daunting. Junior talent as a whole have uneven skill sets that are buried behind portfolios that all look the same. Once hired, managers often don’t know what these people are capable of or how to foster their success. Companies often wing it when it comes to growing their staff, to the detriment of employee productivity, retention and ultimately product quality.

Luckily, there is a better way​!​ Come hear from three industry professionals discuss their approaches for bringing on talent, while keeping business constraints in mind. You will leave with new skills, tools, and a passion to invest in the future of your teams.

Immediately following the panel there will be mixer and opportunity to meet with the talented individuals of General Assembly Austin's three immersive programs (UX Design, Web Development, and Data Science). These people are highly motivated and ready to talk to you about what they can do for your companies.
