High tech jobs for women

A high tech career event for women aims to help students who are searching for job opportunities and seeking career growth.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Feb.1 at the Women’s Museum of California in Liberty Station and is open to public.

Palomar College Graphic Communications Professor Lillian Payn and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Project Coordinator Mireya Gutierrez-Aguero are the event coordinators.

“The event is looking to motivate and encourage women to go into high tech careers and to improve their technology skills so that they can improve their job prospects,” said Payn, who is also the technology outreach chair for AAUW (American Association of University Women) for the San Diego branch.

High Tech = High Pay will feature a panel of “high-performing” women, including June Chocheles from ChochelesConsulting, Leslie Fishlock from Geek Girl, Teri Louden from Louden Network and STEM Advisors Gutierrez-Aguero from Palomar College and Celia Martinez from California State University San Marcos.

According to the event flier, the panelists will be covering several topics, fromas identifying the high tech trends in San Diego to sharing job search strategies. Students will also receive a complimentary résumé review.
