Looking for a job in tech? Join PDXWIT for an evening at Planet Argon dedicated to helping you find your next job. You get what you put in, so come prepared to share. Let us know what you need most right now in the registration questions below (mock interviews, resume review, portfolio reviews, Q&A with recruiters…) and we’ll try to accomodate your needs.

We’ll have a short presentation from Keli Van Holde, Manager of Talent Acquisition at Zapproved, who will share a few simple steps to stand out from the crowd. She’ll also share her insight on how candidates can approach working with in-house recruiters vs. consultancies vs. staffing firms.

We’re also looking for volunteers to participate in the resume and portfolio reviews, as well as the mock interviews. If you’re interested, please select “Volunteer” in the registration process.
