Skillz Technical Recruiter Speaks on “Get Hired in Tech” Panel

Last week, Skillzian Chris joined fellow recruiters from the Bay Area’s leading tech companies on a panel entitled “Get Hired in Tech!” to discuss tips on interviewing, networking, and receiving an offer. Organized by The Expat Woman, the event drew a sold-out crowd of over 50 individuals from diverse backgrounds.

Chris and his fellow panelists candidly shared their experiences and insights, which allowed attendees to better understand the hiring process from a recruiter’s perspective – and grasp what companies are broadly looking for in a strong candidate. After the hour-long panel, Chris also stuck around for additional networking to speak one-on-one with prospective recruits.

Looking back on the panel, Chris notes: “As the son of Ecuadorian immigrants, it was particularly rewarding to share my experience and background with such a diverse group of expats.” He looks forward to future speaking opportunities, and sends special thanks to his fellow panelists from Advent Software, Coffee Meets Bagel, Zendesk and OpenTable for an engaging conversation!
