Landing Your Next Gig in Tech

Landing Your Next Gig in Tech

The unemployment rate is increasing and there is more competition day-by-day in the job market. Many candidates face difficulty standing out or even making it past the resumé review. We can help!

In this talk, we’ll walk through a typical hiring funnel from Resumé Review to the dreaded Onsite. And we’ll share what you can do to stand out each step of the way.

We’ll answer the following questions for each phase of the funnel:
* What is the goal of this phase?
* Who is the audience?
* What are the do's and don’ts?

Annyce is a software industry veteran with years of hiring experience under her belt. And Wesnie is an Android Developer with expertise in the ins-and-outs of the technical interview process.

By the end of this talk, you’ll be ready to land your next gig in tech!
