High-tech is one of the fastest growing industries in Oregon, and the number of tech jobs is expected to grow by 20 percent over the next decade. Opportunities are abundant and the compensation is great, with median salaries nearly double the state average in all other industries.

While your technical skills may get your foot in the door, long-term your soft skills help you stay relevant and create opportunities for advancement. Developing those soft skills begins with an awareness and understanding of who you are as an employee—what you already offer, how you’d like to grow and how you’re connected to your work. With that understanding, you can better develop and apply essential networking and communication skills that are authentic to you and most impactful to your professional growth and success.

Central Oregon tech company leaders and the Technology Association of Oregon have partnered with East Cascades Workforce Investment Board to offer this foundational professional development opportunity in a commitment to building a robust and skilled tech workforce to support the anticipated and ongoing growth of the industry.  

Topics include:

  • 21st Century Work Culture & Trends

  • Starting with WHY

  • Professional Development Competencies

  • Effective Networking Skills

  • Managing Work Flow: Distractions, Asking for Help, Inquiry & Advocacy

Seating for this event is limited, so register now! Lunch will be provided.
