    6:00-6:30: AWS-ome Ryan Jones will present on why AWS and cloud computing is importnant for graduates, as well as a recommended path for getting started. (If you're looking for another way to set yourself apart, AWS is in high demand.)

    6:35-7:05: Ready Your Resume In this interactive workshop led by Maigen Thomas, we will work collectively to optimize our resumes using two easy-to-implement tips that you'll walk away able to use forever. Bring a printed copy of your resume as well as a printed copy of a job description or two that appeals to you. We'll also need one volunteer with a digital copy of their resume to show on screen.

    7:05-8: Resume 1:1s Maigen has agreed to stick around after her workshop to do some 1:1s, and we're planning to have a few more resume-polishing gurus on hand as well. We will have a sign-up sheet for resume 1:1s when you come in, so please bring your resume in order to take advantage of this opportunity.

    We're excited to start 2018 with a bang! We've gotten some great suggestions for speaking topics and activities, but we're always ready to hear more about what you want from your meet-up. Check in with Caleb, Phillip, or Benjamin any time.
