On January 10th, 2018, Girls in TE was invited by the Women in Technology Society, also referred to as WITS, to attend their “Breaking Into Tech” Workshop. This event was designed for those interested in technology and entrepreneurship!
Akailah Wilson, the captivating Google recruiter, led the event with informative tips on resume formatting, preparation for the overall process, and offered suggestions for a first interview! Ms. Wilson thoroughly explained standards for job applications and successfully informed aspiring leaders on the Google recruiting process.
There were also students who spoke on topics such as breaking into tech with no coding experience and what the traditional software recruiting process is like.
I’ve learned an abundance of information and will be attending the next events. Overall, this event was an informative experience and was executed excellently!
