UW CSE hosts annual “happy hours” at a number of companies where our alums have a significant presence. Yesterday, CSE faculty (Tom Anderson, Dan Grossman, Ed Lazowska, Hal Perkins, and Zach Tatlock), advising staff (Crystal Eney, Jen Pesicka, and Dave Rispoli) and outreach staff (Kay Beck-Benton, Karen Howard, and Sergey Smirnov) joined a big crowd of alums at Amazon.com.
We have a number of alums who’ve been at Amazon.com for more than a decade (they get cool colored employee badges!), and Amazon.com is currently the largest recruiter of new UW CSE graduates (and we are their largest supplier of new graduates).
It’s great to be in Seattle!
