Can you believe it? NET/WORK Philly is happening tomorrow, Feb. 25 at The Fillmore in Fishtown, and here’s your reminder: This is not only for active job seekers. We have built a tech job fair and networking event that provides career value to active and passive candidates, including via programming and workshops.

We will have four workshops kicking off at 4 p.m. from local tech and marketing leaders, spot career coaching presented by GoCoach, professional resume reviews presented by Macquarie, professional headshots, networking and a killer happy hour. Not to mention, the 52 companies hiring for over 500 positions. Dang.

See below for all of the details:

Negotiating Tips for Women (4 p.m.)

  • Speaker: Hannah Marks, startup vet and entrepreneur

In 2019, women earned 79 cents for every dollar earned by men (and less for women of color). While several factors impact this statistic, negotiating is an important step in closing this gap. Join for an open discussion around salary negotiation and walk away with the confidence to get what you deserve.

Land Your Dream Job (4:30 p.m.)

Learn how to excel in a technical interview in this session covering resumes, phone screens and in-person interviews. These are the skills that will help you land that dream job.

NET/WORK Like A Natural (5 p.m.)

Let’s face it — walking up to a potential employer and leaving an impactful first impression is intimidating. We found if you can nail the bookends of your conversation, everything in between falls into place. This chat will dive into how to open and close your NET/WORK convos, plus the dos and don’ts of what comes next (re: the followup).

Building SAFE Web Applications in F#/.NET Core (5:30 p.m.)

SAFE stack is high-productivity, type-safe, developer-focused set of libraries for building web applications in F# on .NET. Building with SAFE you can share code and a language from your build scripts, server-side code down to the client. We’ll look at a small SAFE application using a shared event loop and type-safe models between the client and the server.


We’re feeling some Andy Reid-pre-Super Bowl vibes and we’re pumped for tomorrow. NET/WORK is the Super Bowl of job fairs and everyone will come out as a winner. See ya there:
