What’s a HackerX Event Like?

We often get new attendees writing in to see what a HackerX event like. The truth is that every event is unique because we organize over 300+ events worldwide in different venues and cities around the world.

At every event, you should expect our signature event layout: speed recruiting. That means you meet on average 15 companies within a 2-hour time span.

It’s a surprisingly effective use of your time if you’re interested in exploring new opportunities but you have to be strategic.

You don’t have to be an active job seeker, in fact a large portion of our attendees come in not looking for a job and discovering opportunities they didn’t event know they are interested in.

You only have 5 minutes to see if you’re interested in the company and express your interest.

Free food, we have food and drinks catered at every event :)

See you soon!


  1. Bring business cards – Great for networking with others and since you only have 5 minutes to chat with a company you save time exchanging info.
  2. Stay hydrated – Grab water before you start the rotations to ensure you have enough to last through the rotations.
  3. Do research on the companies – Do research and make sure you read the agenda to save time.
