Why Consider a UBC CS Student?
Google recruits from two schools in Canada: Waterloo and UBC. Microsoft has hired Program Managers from at least the last two graduating classes. We don’t know exactly what UBC CS students have, but clearly some students are very employable.
Here are some of the things that may make UBC CS students worth looking at:
Built SQL databases and GUI front ends to run them
Managed teams of 8 in semester long project only courses
Designed interfaces incorporating principles of Human Computer Interaction (HCI)
Implemented and designed online shopping systems from the DB to the UI
