MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- HackerRank, the developer skills company, today announced the launch of their second annual fall virtual career fair to connect developers with leading technology companies.

Over 2,500 companies rely on the market-leading HackerRank Developer Skills Platform to recruit the best tech talent for their teams in the new remote world. In 2020, HackerRank brought this expertise to the virtual hiring event space with their inaugural virtual career fair. That event featured over 20,000 registrations, 53 exhibiting companies, 33% women participation, and over 8,000 candidates with a HackerRank Skill Certification.
Job-seekers who are interested in attending the fair can register in the HackerRank Community, build their applicant profile, and earn skill credentials to help them stand out to recruiters. Once their profile is set up, they can access the exhibitor page and view companies who are hiring for full-time and intern positions. If an attendee is interested in a company, they can express interest in open positions or schedule a 1:1 session with a recruiter to learn more.
Throughout the event, exhibiting companies will host live virtual sessions for the career fair audience, including tech talks, AMAs, and panel discussions. During the second day, there will be a developer networking hour where attendees can interact and make connections with fellow students and professionals.
