The ASES Bootcamp for Career Design is an all-new, three-day Career Design Camp that aims to develop college students to be the best businessmen, designers, and coders of the future.
There will be specialized sessions and workshops given by industry experts, startup founders, and self-development hackers, with a competition on the third day to culminate the event.
Self-development talks and workshops by prominent individuals will be held. At the end of the day, the participants will design the life they want for themselves and create their own life trajectory.
Workshops by industry experts on marketing, designing, programming, and entrepreneurship will be offered to the participants. Later in the day, the case for the competition will be released, and the participants will be given working time to prepare with their mentors.
Each track will have a different case to tackle, and participants will be pitching themselves individually to an esteemed panel of judges. After the winners are announced, a farewell dinner will follow at a nearby restaurant to close the event.
Only college students are allowed to apply. However, incoming college freshmen for SY 2017-2018 are eligible and highly encouraged to apply.
The pitching competition is done individually. There will be a case given on Day 2 where each individual would have to pitch themselves to our judges. Time will be allotted for participants to prepare. Mentors will be around to help the participants prepare for the competition.
Yes, applicants must select only one track for the Bootcamp. There are four tracks available: Design, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, and Programming.
