AOLers Share Career Advice in "Pathways to Success" Series

Equipped with notebooks, questions, and abundant enthusiasm, students from the High School of Telecommunication Arts and Technology headed to AOL HQ yesterday for "Pathways to Success." Held in New York, the event brings tech-interested students together for career advice and exposure.

The invited students attend one of 20 New York City public schools selected for a new program, the Software Engineering Pilot (SEP) - which provides funding to offer a comprehensive curriculum of computer science and software engineering for both girls and boys.

Panelists shared stories and advice, with the goal of exposing students to the myriad pathways available in the tech field. As the speakers wrapped up, a key-takeaway arose: "Keep in touch with the classmates you're with today, as those connections will be helpful in the future - you never know who you'll be connected with later on in life."

"Pathways to Success" is an ongoing AOL program through which we invite students interested in technology to the AOL office for a career panel and tour of the Studio. Stay tuned for future updates and events news by following @AOLImpact.

Talent Acquisition Heads Back to School!


Labor Day has come and gone, and many of you have been snapping those memorable "first day of school" photos of your kids heading off to the first day of class. But you're not the only ones going back to campus! This fall, the College Recruiting team will be promoting AOL as a great place to work by sharing stories about internships, innovation, and culture, while engaging with the top talent at career fairs, information sessions, club meetings and on-site visits.

Last year's popular campus visits brought AOL a large pool of very successful interns, entry-level hires, and recent MBA graduates who were ready to put their freshly-sharpened skills to work. This year, our team is trying to outdo ourselves by engaging even more impressive students from around the country.

Three teams of enthusiastic AOL employees have already met over 300 students at local New York Campus Fairs:


Next up? We're off to campuses nationwide to fill internship and full-time roles. Look out for us at career fairs, club meetings and networking sessions at Carnegie Mellon, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, UC Berkeley, Virginia Tech, University of Maryland and many more!

Heroes Wanted: Join AOL's Mobile Team

Hi, my name is Sabrina, and I'm a recruiter on the AOL Talent Acquisition team. I'm excited to be the first to contribute to a new series for the AOL Blog that we're calling "Heroes Wanted." The series aims to bring you some of the most exciting employment opportunities within the many teams at AOL. This first post goes in search of heroes to join our Mobile development team, who build some of the most fun and well-regarded mobile products in the business!

In a world where millions of people use our products every month*, we rely on the power and pluck of the mobile software engineers to save the day. You were put on this earth to make a difference and we want to harness, develop and foster your skills and talent to help you achieve that goal. We are focused on the future. We have a solid plan in place to become the largest online content provider in the world and we're making strides every day. But what I truly think differentiates us from other companies are our people. We collaborate and work as a team creating a real sense of community.

We're searching for developers that are passionate about mobile technology. We have a dynamic team full of creative, ingenious AOLers that work hard and play hard. They've already made amazing products like my personal favorites Moviefone for iPad, Engadget Distro and AOL Play. To win the war on bad applications, we are on a mission to find the few, the proud, the super-talented. Our goal is to build intuitive and engaging mobile applications that even your parents can use. This means solving complex, unique and large-scale problems, working with a passionate team and creating compelling apps for the Android and iOS platforms. You'll battle dark forces daily and continually improve processes and tools to make the web a better place for all civilians.

Think you have what it takes? Can you answer Yes to all of the following questions?
  • I have built high quality web applications that were published in the Android Market/Google Play and/or the Apple AppStore. I'll tell you all about them.
  • When I build applications, I always consider how to create a great end-user experience because if I don't look out for those little guys, who will?
  • I have a passion for mobile device technologies and a desire to increase my cadre of technology powers.
  • I enjoy working within a league of other code heroes. Building apps is a team sport and I excel at communications – especially with team members and product or business owners.
  • Also? I have a B.S. in Computer Science or a related field. My coding superpowers extend to Java and Android development and/or Objective-C/C++/C, Cocoa Touch and iOS development. Plus, I have hands-on experience developing software using object-oriented programming and killer design skills. Duh, obviously. I am a code superhero after all.
