I was invited by the ACM Club at Virginia Tech to be a guest speaker at one of their “Tech Talks” last night.
I was pleasantly surprised by the students and the questions they asked. Very smart bunch and friendly. The campus itself was gorgeous as well. If I ever went back to school, I think that Virginia Tech would find itself at the top of my list for where I’d want to go.
I’m planning on keeping in touch with some of the students, at least the ones that talked to me afterwards and gave me their email address. I hope they take my advice and get a profile up on LinkedIn and start networking as much as they can. It will pay off for them down the road as they advance their careers.
Thank you for having me guys, I had a good time and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
