    PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) Inside the Mind of a Hiring Manager

    Squarespace

    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-inside-the-mind-of-a-hiring-manager-tickets-51732000807] is required to gain entry to this event

    Ever wonder what the hiring manager on the other side of the table, phone screening, or video interview is thinking? This is your chance to ask a panel of hiring managers and tech recruiters ANY job search-related question. This is a safe space with no judgement. No question is off limits! Should I state my desired salary? Is it too soon to send another follow up email? What do I do if I don’t know the answer? What are the most common mistakes candidates make? We’ll kick off the event with a few questions to get the conversation rolling, then it's open to anyone in the audience to ask a question. Come ask the experts who have seen it all!

    The event will be moderated by Asia Kane of Opal and will include the following panelists from Portland’s technology community:

    Amanda Lopez of Ruby Receptionists

    Join us for happy hour at Squarespace on April 17th.

    Do you want to amplify your voice? We do too, so we are dedicating this event to being heard, which can be accomplished in a number of ways. To facilitate the conversation, the topic of the night is “how do you inject your voice into the workplace?”

    While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase three women in our community.

    Introduction to Squarespace, including what they do and what job opportunities are available.

    Meg Aul, CRM Analyst and Salesforce Administrator at Viewpoint, will talk about asking for what you want at work and what to do when the answer isn't 'Yes'

    Tiffany Longworth, Site Reliability Engineer at Puppet, will talk about tactical and whimsical ways to leverage fun to get work done.

    During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

    • An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

    • Table Topics to help break the ice.

    • A section for job seekers and our sponsors who are hiring, to ensure people get connected.
