Description

Job Application Secrets: Nine Common Mistakes Candidates Make, presented by Fly Homes!

A hiring manager at any given tech company in Portland receives hundreds of applications for an open position in Sales, Marketing, Operations, or Administration. More than half of the received applications are discarded immediately, or soon after, due to simple (and preventable!) mistakes that applicants routinely make. During this presentation we’ll cover the 9 most common mistakes applicants make on their cover letters, resumes, email responses, phone screens, and in-person interviews that disqualify them from the applicant pool. A successful job application means successfully marketing and selling yourself to the company—and in this presentation marketer Carly J. Cais shows you how to jump through each job application hoop successfully. Getting a job is ultimately 10% luck and 90% meeting the company’s criteria, but coming to this presentation will help you ace that 90%. You can get in the room with the decision-makers...and ultimately get HIRED.

Carly J. Cais, Senior Sales & Marketing Operations Manager, Routeware

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.
