find your perfect match

ESTnetNG Blind Date

On the 12th February, a team of employers joined ESTnetNG at Dev Ops Group for an evening of flair, wit and charm.  

Blind Date, in partnership with Cardiff University, provided an opportunity for employers to meet prospective graduates and placement students in a fun and alternative format.

Staying true to the TV format, our employers took centre stage to ask questions to 3 students hidden behind a screen. They then selected a 'match' based on the responses they liked best. Once selected, we revealed the student!

 Blind Date _Alfie Potter _2A special thank you to our amazing host – Alfie Potter, Cardiff University Computer Science student and to the companies who made Blind Date a success.

Some of the peculiar questions asked by employers included;

“How would you explain AI to a six year old” – Toby White, Artimus Solutions

“If you were a super hero, what would your power be and why?” – Tim Knott, Alert Logic

Those matched on the night have been offered a mix of automatic interviews or immediate enrolment into the application process of that organisation. We wish the lucky students good luck on their dates, we will catch up with them at the ESTnetNG Fishbowl on 13th March.
