Whether you’re a hiring manager struggling to attract and retain top digital talent or a job candidate looking to transition to a new role, finding each other can be frustrating for both sides.  Data scientists and AI experts, those with IoT and advanced analytics expertise are in huge demand.  The supply is there, the trick is connecting the right talent with the right business.

Advancing Women in Technology (AWT) is excited to announce our next event in Irvine on Wednesday, September 19th.  Join us for “Connecting Digital Talent and Digital Opportunity” presented by Janelle Hill, Vice President and Distinguished Analyst, of Gartner.

Janelle will share best practices and a case study from a non-digital company as well as practical tips for how candidates and employers can effectively find each other.  You don’t have to be Facebook or Netflix or a well-known “digital giant” to attract great digital talent. If you’re looking for your next digital role, you might be surprised where you can find opportunity and engagement.  This will be an interactive session highlighting some of the emerging better techniques for recruiting and developing digital talent, including women, and for finding digital roles both inside and outside of digital companies.

Key takeaways will include:

  • It’s not all about money.
  • How to write a job description that appeals to your audience.
  • Focusing on the big companies may be cramping your style…and your career path
  • You’re both out there…you just need help connecting.


In addition to the informative tools and takeaways, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to network with your peers.

This event is available to men and women, both active members of AWT as well as non-members.
