Continuing to support women’s advancement in the technology industry, Senior Attorney Janina Malone participated in PDX Women in Technology’s Get Hired Up Virtual Event. How we interview is changing.  This virtual event was a wonderful opportunity to help those seeking new opportunities gain practice through mock interviews and resume review. This opportunity helps women, non-binary folks and allies feel confident in their skills and how to best highlight them in this very competitive industry.
