BBG_Summit_EventInvite_Newsletter_B (1).jpg

BUILT BY GIRLS Summit is just around the corner and we can’t wait to see all of you who snagged a ticket before they were sold out. The Summit is your chance to connect with other BUILT BY GIRLS community members from around the country, pick up career (and life) advice from inspiring womxn, and gain a few practical skills in hands-on workshops. 


 To make sure you’re as ready for the big day as possible, here’s what you should have prepared. 

Updated Resume
There will be on-site resume critiques by professionals who know what hiring managers are looking for. Don’t miss out on the chance to make your resume as flawless as possible. Bring a few copies to show them and take notes on.

Notebook + Pen
Pearls of wisdom will be dropping left and right and you won’t want to forget a thing! Bring your old-fashioned note-taking supplies (i.e. pens and notebooks).

One Dollar Bill
Don’t worry, you’ll be able to hang onto it. Berna Anat who is giving a talk on budgeting has asked you all bring a dollar.

Questions for the Speakers
We have an awesome lineup of speakers, be sure to look at the schedule and come ready with questions. Pro tip: research the speakers and take note of their topic to ensure you are asking relevant questions based on their expertise.

Don’t Bring Your Laptop
There won’t be any reason or time for you two be on your computer, iPad, or tablet while you’re at the Summit—so leave it at home.
