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  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 1pm – 5pm. (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.

OK, now you’re definitely convinced, right? Click here to RSVP and let ChickTech know if you need transportation assistance. We really hope to see you all there! Thank you! P.S. If you have any questions about this event, please email them to [email protected].
