One of the hardest parts of any job search is understanding the job listing. Do they really want you to know 5 different languages? How can they want 10 years of React.js experience for a junior position? It says Javascript in the headline, but they only mention Java, what do I do?

If you have ever had any of these questions or similar ones, join Girl Develop It and Tech Ladies for a session on deciphering job listings! Learn how to read between the lines to figure out what they really want from a potential employee with Toni Warren (The Iron Yard, Suncoast Developer’s Guild).

Tech Ladies is a community of 30,000 women and nonbinary people in tech! We hold meetups and events all over the US and Canada and we are excited to bring the Tech Ladies community to Tampa Bay. For questions, contact the Tampa Bay city organizers [masked].
