Job Shadow Day 2010

Following last year's tradition, the XWiki geeks welcomed students from the Computer Science High School in the Iasi office on Job Shadow Day. The event allows high school students in their final years to spend a few hours at a "serious" company and get acquainted with the daily responsibilities of its employees.

Caty welcomed them and did the warm-up session, then Silvia showed some insight on our marketing strategy. Being a former student myself, I was more then happy to talk about my daily responsibilities as a web developer. Marius gave our visitors some feedback about his experience as a new employee at XWiki, Miruna shared some "tricky" interview questions and Anca proved that fixing a bug is not as hard as it looks.

We organized a Wii tennis session, exchanged plenty of geek jokes and offered XWiki goodies to our guests. I hope the junior geeks had just as much fun as we did and we will be expecting them next year for some more geek talk.
