RaiseMe Career Village returns for 2021!

Posted on 26 May 2021 by operator (0)

The RaiseMe Career Village is back for 2021! All RaiseMe content will be on our Discord server for the virtual event! Check out the #raiseme chat channel to get started! Full details below:

Whether you are currently outside the information security field and looking for your first role, or an established member of the InfoSec industry and want to kick up your career a notch, we’re here to lend a helping hand. Our volunteer consultants provide Resume Review, Mock Interviews, Job Hunting Assistance, and Career Check-ups. We also help companies looking for talent by connecting our participants with their hiring managers and staffing professionals.

The vision for RaiseMe is to make career dreams come true. We serve the entire community — from newcomers to principal engineering talent, from tiny startups to well-established public corporations. Is there a role in security you wish you had but have no idea where to start to make that dream come true? If you want to make a career change, we want to help! In this village, you’ll learn:

  • What you should do to your resume
  • What types of roles and employers you should target
  • How to manage the interview and negotiation
  • How to help recruiters help you
  • How LUGs and conferences make a difference
  • Is there such a thing as too many certifications?

To help us, please meet our volunteer career consultants and sign up for an appointment! No matter what sort of shape your resume is in you’ll walk away with great insight about how it could be helping or hurting your career ambitions.

The RaiseMe Career Village is open 10:00 – 17:00 on both Saturday and Sunday.
