You’ve already broken the mold. You’re a woman in a career field often thought of as a boys’ club. All that’s left is to land a first-rate job at one of the nation’s largest companies.
Fairygodboss is giving you the opportunity to do just that — from the comfort of your home. The women-centric career website is hosting a virtual job fair for women in tech on Nov. 10 between noon and 3 pm ET. Tech employers recruiting at the event include Juniper Networks, Leidos, Lucid Motors, Computershare and Peapod Digital Labs.
Each company has open positions in a variety of tech-related roles, including:
- Data science
- Software design and engineering
- Tech consultants and team leaders
- User-experience and user-interface design
A resume or a PDF version of your LinkedIn profile is required to register for the fair. Registration closes at noon Wednesday, Nov. 9.
If you can’t attend the event, consider signing up anyway. Fairygodboss will forward your resumes to the companies hiring at the event.
Fairygodboss recommends that attendees have at least two years of job experience and that students should hold off on attending until they graduate.
During the event, you will be able to virtually meet hiring managers through an online portal. Each company will have a digital booth, similar to a real job fair, where you can learn more information about the company, browse open positions or join a chat room with other attendees and hiring managers.
To request more information about a specific job listing, you may start a one-on-one chat or video session with a hiring manager. Or if you’re making a good impression, the hiring manager may request a chat session with you.
