This Career Day includes a behind-the-scenes tour, a hands-on activity that simulates the challenges of streaming video, and two breakout sessions to connect directly with professionals such as Nina (software development manager), Anna (front-end engineer) and Jim (software engineer) for job insights and career advice.
