Is NYC Uncubed for me?
NYC Uncubed is for those looking to learn from and work at some of today’s most exciting tech companies.
Uncubed is not for outside recruitment, soliciting, or business networking. Anyone engaged in these actions will be removed without a refund. We kindly ask that you respect our policy and our participating companies.
What does my pass include?
- Access to hiring companies
- Light snacks and beverages
What is the schedule?
Please refer to the event page and logistics emails for specific timing.
Please note that re-entry is allowed with your name badge.
What is the refund policy?
Full refunds are given for any reason at least 2 weeks in advance of the event. You can e-mail [email protected] to get the process started.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate any refunds within 2 weeks of the event.
What should I wear?
NYC Uncubed is a casual event. There is no dress code! Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in.
Please note that all attendees must wear their name badges at all times.
At registration, you will receive a name badge that indicates your skill set and the years of professional experience you indicated upon purchasing your pass.
Should I bring printed resumes?
We do suggest you bring hard copies of your resume with you. Every company is different. One may ask you to apply online, request a copy, invite you into the office the next day…you name it. Don’t be offended if a company rep gives you a business card instead of taking your resume as some prefer digital over paper.
Unsure of what a resume for a startup should look like? Take a look at The First 5 Things a Recruiter Sees on Your Resume only available on our digital online learning platform, Uncubed.com.
