Women Who Code Portland is hosting our first ever workshop on Navigating the Tech Industry and Landing Your Next Opportunity! The goal of this workshop is to provide people with the opportunity to learn how others have navigated salary negotiations, gather tips on what to consider when negotiating a job offer, and have their resumes reviewed by recruiters from local companies. This event is geared towards helping women, but we welcome everyone who supports our mission of inspiring women to excel in technology careers and follows our code of conduct.

This workshop is broken into three sections:
- Salary Negotiation Panel

- Resume talk by Jarvis Sam from Nike

- Resume review breakout sessions with recruiters

The first half of the morning will be a panel on salary negotiation with women from Nike, Metal Toad, and InVision talking about their experiences and advice in regards to negotiating a job offer. The second half of the morning will be a talk given by Jarvis Sam of Nike, titled In the Know: Demystifying Resume Writing and Interviewing.

The event cost is $10 for participants and includes lunch.
