WP Career Summit — the first of its kind — will be held online on April 8, 2022 from 9AM – 5PM CT. While still in the early stages of planning, we can promise it will be an amazing event!
What we have planned:
- 7 sessions for Job Seekers
- 7 sessions for Employers
- Jitsi rooms for Sponsors
- Recorded commercials for Sponsors
- Speaking opportunities
- A Job Fair
- Networking opportunities
- Lots of guidance and instruction!
Opportunities for Sponsors
While we’re still working out what sponsorship looks like, we know that we’ll be able to offer sponsors the opportunity to show why potential employees would want to work with them, as well as the chance to meet career seekers, accept résumés, and even schedule interviews. The summit will include an online job fair for sponsors to list their openings.
Opportunies for Speakers
We will do specific outreach for some speakers with specific knowledge but will also open a call for speakers, too! And because we believe in honoring those who so generously donate their time, we’ll have a speaker honorarium. So if you have something to talk about that will help others with job searching, or helping businesses do better recruiting and hiring, watch for our call for speakers soon.
Opportunities for Job Seekers
If you’re someone who is looking for a new career, or to make a move to a new role or company, this will be the perfect opportunity to meet with the employers, learn about their workplace cultures, and hear about open positions.
The job seeker track will also be a great way to learn how to find a new position. It will cover résumé development, job searching, interviewing techniques, portfolio assembly, and more. (These are topics we need speakers for, so if that might be you, please keep an eye out for the call for speakers.)
