Event description
Girl, You Better {net}Work is a mini-conference designed to help you navigate your career and network with confidence.

About this Event

As a young woman or gender non-binary student, going from classroom to career is no easy task. We can all relate to the experience of awkward networking, the fear that your resume won’t stand out no matter how well-designed, and not knowing if we nailed or failed our first impressions. Join the BUILT BY GIRLS community and let’s get down to business - you’ll gain the skills to dismantle your career-related fears and {net}work your way to the next level.

WHAT TO EXPECT

PANEL: The Myth of the Perfect Career Path

We know there’s a lot of pressure on you to nail the interview, to land an amazing internship, to find your dream career, all while presenting a picture-perfect life via social media. In this session, a panel of speakers will share strategies to dismantle these career-related worries and develop tactics to reflect on them productively.

WORKSHOP: Mastering the Humblebrag + Networking 101

Let’s address the elephant in the room: networking is necessary but can often feel inauthentic, awkward, and intimidating. This session will break down some key networking strategies, challenge you to craft a 30-second elevator pitch, and practice it on the spot with peers and professionals.

WORKSHOP: Resume Level-Up

The common catch-22: how do you demonstrate you have work experience when you’re applying for your very first job or internship? In this workshop, you’ll gain coveted tips from an HR professional in tech, as well as personal feedback on your very own resume.

Join us for an evening where you craft your elevator pitch, learn networking tips and practice IRL (without the awkwardness), and gain personal resume feedback. Who knows? You may even meet your future co-founder, crew, or BFF.

THE DEETS

  • Dress attire: Whatever makes you feel comfortable!
  • What to bring: 5 printed copies of your resume.
  • Food and drink will be provided!

Please note: While our events are open to everyone, they are geared towards students who identify as female or gender non-binary between the ages of 15-22.
