About CS Club:

The purpose of the Computer Science Club is to create a space for students to connect and grow their technical skills outside of the classroom. This includes providing personal and professional development workshops, giving students opportunities to put impressive projects on their résumés, conducting mock interviews, hosting company tours, and connecting students with more professionals in the industry. Whether you just want to know what coding is, or need help getting an internship, everyone is welcome in the CS Club!

About Girls Who Code College Loop Club:

The Girls Who Code College Loop club here at SJSU is a safe space for women in STEM (and particularly those in tech related fields). We want women to have a place where they can network and create connections that go beyond the workplace so they have a community of others on who they can rely on. That being said, we do accept all people regardless of gender identity, because allies are just as important when it comes to creating a safe space where everyone feels welcome.

If you are looking for a place to meet more people in tech, network with others, practice what you know, and/or learn something new (e.g. a new language, git/github, resume building, etc.) come join us! Everyone is welcome!

About Hoplite:

Looking for internships and full-time jobs can be a stressful process and is often a long journey that involves: applying, waiting to hear back, scheduling the interview, technical prep, whiteboarding, back and forth correspondence, and (hopefully) receiving an offer -- all while we are still dealing with school.

The purpose of Hoplite is to help students master the foundational data structures and algorithms in order to excel in technical interviews and land competitive offers. We also strive to foster a sense of community and help students build a strong network with motivated peers. We host weekly/bi-weekly interview prep sessions, resume workshops, collaborations with companies, alumni panels, etc,. to help you get into your dream company! Our members and alumni have gotten offers from: Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Facebook, Salesforce, VMWare, Adobe, HPE, Cisco, Twitch, JP Morgan, and many others!
