Demystifying Technical Careers

Improving Hiring for Applicants and Managers

Job Seekers

Our Job Seekers’ Workshops provide a welcoming place for people interested in the tech community to seek and provide advice. Sometimes mentoring or networking seems nebulous, but we coordinate directed sessions with knowledgeable volunteers on resume feedback, interview advice, and perspectives on the tech landscape. If you want career advice or hard conversation practice, this is the workshop for you.

Next Workshop: Saturday May 22, 2021
