Out in Tech New York | #NetWerking @LinkedIn

May 25, 2016 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Out in Tech #NetWerking

Research tells us that a stunning 70-80% percent of jobs are found through networking. Whether youre currently looking for a new job, considering a change in the future, or just keeping up-to-date with your career options, establishing professional connections is invaluable. But as you may know, meeting industry-relevant professionals in a city of 8.5 million isnt as easy as it sounds.

Out in Tech can help! We invite you to join us at LinkedIn to acquire the tools and connections you need, whether you’re actively seeking employment or a passive job seeker. In Part 1 of the event, a leading career coach will discuss tips for pitching yourself most effectively. Then in Part 2 we’ll put you to werk — you’ll pitch yourself to other LGBT professionals in lightning sessions. Groups will be organized around participants’ roles and industries to match you with the connections that matter most.
