Kick-Off WTX Event with Susan Haindl
At the first Women Tech Xchange conference, we welcomed Susan Haindl, president of service and a delivery at Anexinet, to come speak to us. We discussed what it is like to work in a tech company and what her role specifically was in her company. As the interview progressed, our speaker delved into topics relating to the gender gap in these companies and what it is like to compete in the industry as a woman. At a Q&A that preceded, Susan Haindl addressed what management looks for in a new hire, and how networking can be a very beneficial skill to have.

Second WTX Event with Cecilia Jankowski
Cecilia Jankowski joined us at our second Women Tech eXchange conference. She is the Managing Director of Member and Geographic Activities at IEEE. Cecilia Jankowski told us not only about her current position, but also of her goals and ambitions in high school. We discussed opportunities offered in college, and even more importantly, how to make the most of them. As for career advice, she told us of qualities that hiring managers look for in potential job candidates. Switching gears, Cecilia discussed the current gender gap in technology professions, and how this gap has affected her personally. This conference gave students a true insight to the professional world after high school.
