    Looking for a job in tech? Join PDXWIT for an afternoon at Shiftwise 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 (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 Chris Hayes, Career Coach, who will share a few simple steps to improve your LinkedIn profile. Chris will also be available for 1:1 coaching during the event.

    We’re also looking for volunteers to participate in the reviews. If you’re interested, please complete this form. If you’d like to volunteer, please do not register for the event as we will handle it separately.

    Purpose:

    PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
