Today's Topic: Career Options Bright for 2007 ACM ICPC Winners
The coach for Warsaw University, the first place team in this year's ACM
Intercollegiate Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC), reported that his
team members received a variety of promising scientific and business offers
from organizations in Poland as well as abroad. In a brief survey of team
coaches for selected top finishers in this year's ICPC, Jan Madey noted that
members of Warsaw's teams, which have advanced to the ICPC finals every years
since 1994, had "no problem" in finding interesting jobs in Poland. He added
that "the door is open" for them almost anywhere in the world should they want
to go abroad for employment.
Similar responses were reported by coaches for two U.S. universities that
finished among the leaders in the ICPC World Finals in Tokyo in March.
