Our next social event this term is WAN Night! We’ll be closing off our
year on the committee with a fan favourite, so head to Discord on
Saturday for a night of gaming. We’ve also got a technical interview
workshop from Google next week. Importantly, *you’ll need to sign up to
this event in advance* so if you’re interested in advice on tackling
interviews then see below for details! Furthermore, this year’s CompSoc
AGM will be happening this Wednesday. Most importantly, we’ll be
electing the new committee at this event. Any member of CompSoc,
including freshers, is welcome (and encouraged!) to run for a position
on the committee. It’s been a great experience for me and I recommend
looking at the roles and seeing which might suit you! More details
below. Learn to Code also continues this week on Thursday! Whether
you’re keen to learn programming or have experience and want to help
others learn, it’s a great opportunity. We’ve also got messages this
week from the Oxford University Careers Service, TPP, Citadel and Google
so check them out below.
If you aren’t already on the CompSoc Discord, you can *join it here
<https://discord.gg/RhvsMSn>* to take part in social events and keep in
touch with other members.
