#SQLRally Women in Technology Panel of WIN AND AWESOMENESS

2012/05/10

Best. Luncheon. EVAR.

I just finished up moderating this year’s Women in Technology panel here at SQLRally, and it was fantastic.  SQLSentry sponsored (thanks!), and our panelists were SQL notables Erin Welker (@sqlbigirl), Jen Stirrup (@jenstirrup), and Wes Brown (@SQLServerIO)*.

The topic was absolutely brilliant: Negotiation. The abstract:

Whether you are searching for a new job or simply needing to relocate your desk, you need the right tools to make your request effective. Come hear how our Women in Technology (WIT) panel of experts have tackled these issues, and learn how you can give yourself the best opportunity to negotiate for what you want.

 Man, did they deliver. Among the points discussed…

When negotiating, presentation is key

Arm yourself with help and information

Have goals

Protect yourself!

Final thoughts and notes

We have a few more notes that came out of the question and answer period:

 And finally, my own thoughts:

 A final thanks to everyone, and see you next time. Happy days!
