What is RaiseMe?
RaiseMe offerings serve the whole community because we are helping people
tackle the hardest problems, not just recruiting. RaiseMe is a resource for
employers who are struggling to retain valuable talent in a competitive
industry. We assist with recommendations for talent development and best
practices in engineering leadership and management. We have future talk and
workshop events scheduled after ShellCon which are specifically for developing
excellence in engineering managers.
RaiseMe is Unique
RaiseMe is also special because sponsorship isn’t the typical one-and-done deal
found at other cons. Since we are continuously active in the community, our
sponsorships work like a subscription to an annual service. You may consider
the benefits of being associated with our program after the conference are the
bonus for helping us put on an excellent conference every September.
During the year, our sponsors can send us a heads-up about their new positions
any time, and receive introductions. Participating individuals can also reach
out to us any time and update us on their situations.
Also, we have year round workshops, and our sponsors are welcome to send HR
representatives as well as attendees to all of them. And RaiseMe participants
receive priority registration. RaiseMe held a Resume Workshop in conjunction
with ShellCon’s Pentesting 101 Workshop earlier this year. And RaiseMe offered
a re-careering talk and workshop at the 2018 LayerOne Conference as well.
The vision for RaiseMe is to make career dreams come true. We serve the entire
community – from newcomers to principal engineering talent, from tiny startups
to well-established public corporations.
