About the Event

🎉 Join us for our inaugural City Chapter Event in Amsterdam!

⚙️ This panel event, sponsored and hosted by Catawiki, titled Breaking into Engineering will focus on equipping junior engineers with some key takeaways that will help them land their first (or next) entry-level engineering job.

We'll start the event with an informal meet and greet, following which, 3 amazing early career engineers from Catawiki will share their Success Stories with us.

Following this, we will have a panel discussion on landing your first engineering job, and we'll get to hear useful tips, tricks, and different perspectives, from our panelists - a mix of Junior Engineers and Engineering Managers.
