Hi everyone - a reply from the hosts to your comments! Thanks for your interest in this event!
To everyone talking about video: We need a volunteer to step forward to do this; the organizers don't have the time. If we get a volunteer, I will ask Gayle's permission. We will only be taping Gayle if we tape anything.
@Aileen - we will not be offering resume reviews; maybe another time. While they don't focus on technical resumes specifically, I recommend the Jewish Vocational Services resume class, resume podcast, + their drop-in resume reviews to help improve your resume in general; there are books on technical resumes that you can refer to as well.
@Pinar & @Aliya - Sorry, men cannot attend Women Who Code events even as guests of women. Please update your RSVP appropriately.

I agree it's a valuable workshop topic (So! Much! Thank you!). However, I believe this is the rare tech workshop at which videorecording affects the dynamic. Many people would be wary of being recorded in a job interview, let alone an unpolished one, and shared where a (future, or *cough* present) employer might encounter it. If Gayle is willing to be recorded, then perhaps roll camera only while she's speaking. For the sake of candid discussions & productive roleplays, please consider leaving unrecorded everything else including mingles. Then let's schedule another practice night really soon. Clearly people would love to sign up for it.
