Women's Resume Writing Workshop - Leslie Hawthorn, Elasticsearch

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While Linux jobs may be plentiful, candidates still need to ensure their resumes are primed to meet the expectations of corporate recruiters and hiring managers. As part of their efforts to encourage more diverse participation in the Linux and cloud computing communities, The Linux Foundation has teamed up with Leslie Hawthorn to offer a resume writing workshop for women.

During this workshop, Leslie will offer her insights from her time in the trenches as a corporate recruiter for Google's Linux Kernel engineering team. The workshop is divided into two segments. The first focuses on common pitfalls when preparing your resume that women may find themselves encountering more often than men. She'll go over three sample resumes from highly accomplished women she knows and do before and after feedback session with the workshop participants. For the second part, we'll break into small groups and augment each others resume and do a before and after look.

ring at least three print outs of your resume plus your willingness to let your awesomeness shine through. You can be humble tomorrow, when you're not working on your resume! You do not need to sign up for this workshop to attend. Final timing and location will be announced soon.
