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!
