Talk: Picking a Startup to Intern At (Cedric Chin - NUS Student)

Talk Description: The most commonly repeated advice about tech internships is that you should do two: one at a large company, and one at a startup. Picking a large company to work for is fairly easy: Google, Facebook, Palantir are reputable places to work, and are fairly well known. On the other hand, picking a good startup to work for is difficult. What you want to do is to pick a good company while they’re small - 5 - 20 people small. The problem is that when companies are small, it’s not clear if they are good. My talk will focus on how to do this, with some success.

Speaker Profile: Cedric Chin is an Computer Science major at NUS. He ran the NUS Hackers from late 2010 - mid 2012. He’s interned at enough startups to know that they’re all trainwrecks on the inside - even the good ones. Previous internships: Kicksend, Viki.
