Resume & Career Workshop: 10 Reasons Why You Should Attend
If you can answer YES to the following question …
Did you attend ChickTech: High School at Portland State University in January 2013?
… then, you should click here and RSVP for the first follow-up event: The Resume & Career Workshop.
Here are 10 reasons why you should attend:
- It takes place on March 16, from 1 p.m. – 5p.m. (That’s a Saturday, on a non-finals weekend, and it leaves plenty of time before and after to do fun stuff with family and friends on your day off!)
- It’s hosted at ISITE Design, a digital agency in Portland. (That means you get a peek inside a potential career path: coding, IT, user experience, digital strategy, and more, are all parts of a modern digital marketing and advertising agency.)
- You could win a $200 gift certificate to Saturday Academy in a raffle at the event. (That means you can take a class you hand-pick from their wide selection of interesting topics including film/animation, computer science, computer programming, and more.)
- There will be snacks. (Enough said.)
- You will learn how to give a good handshake. (Seems minimal, but it’s a good thing to know!)
- You will learn how to do everything right at an interview, by
poking fun*critiquing* an adult volunteer who is doing it all wrong.
- You will learn about what tech-related internships are available right now to people like you, in the Portland area.
- You will learn about what specific tech careers look like day-to-day.
- We will help you create a professional resume.
- You’ll leave with everything you need to apply for a tech internship!
- BONUS REASON: You will laugh and have a lot of fun with the peers and volunteers you met and got to know at ChickTech: High School.
