CHICAGO (October 18, 2012) – Enova International will host its first citywide coding competition—NoLimit Code’Em—for all currently enrolled students in colleges from Chicago and surrounding states on Thursday, Oct. 25 at the Merchandise Mart.

The first-place winner will receive a MacBook Air, second-place wins an iPad and third-place winner will receive a $100 iTunes gift card.

“The codefest is a great opportunity to attract some of the brightest students in the area,” said Julie Emerson, lead corporate recruiter for Enova. “Enova is continually hiring the best tech talent and the event is the perfect way to introduce students to the excitement and challenges they would face at Enova.”
