This weekend, over 100 Code2College students attended in the November Professional Skills Workshop at HomeAway (a Code2College Megabyte-level Corporate Partner).
In addition to having an opportunity to practice the elevator pitches that students developed during the October workshop at RetailMeNot, they also worked independently and in groups on developing professional emails to peers and managers.
As the main event, all students partnered with Code2College Volunteers to work on an in-depth data analytics case study developed by HomeAway and ultimately presented their findings during two rounds of intense judging panels.
Have you ever watched a high school student, let alone over 100 of them, present data analytics and insights to a panel of professionals who work in the business analytics and data space for a living? This weekend, we did, and we’re incredibly proud of all that our students continue to accomplish!
Huge shout out to HomeAway for hosting us, as well as all of the HomeAway volunteers and executive sponsors who shared their time and expertise so selflessly with us. We truly appreciate it!
