Hello, everyone out there in Webinar Land. My name is Rob Stevenson. Welcome to the 2022 State of Tech Salaries Webinar, How to Build Leverage in a Volatile Job Market. We’ve assembled a fantastic panel to help you out and to discuss the report to send you off into the world with some great advice for how you can adjust your resume, position yourself, and understand more about what’s going on on the other side of the interview table. 

I’m going to give you a quick background on this report in a minute but at a very high level: all you need to know is every year Hired releases this report based on the data we have on the Hired platform of hundreds of thousands of job offers made and accepted. It includes everything from the time it takes to salary and title information. We have an understanding on what candidates are ranking really highly in their own job search, and how companies are balancing that and making sure they can remain competitive. 

We’re going to go through the report and key takeaways. Then, we’ll have our panel unpack the report and put it into terms that you can use in your own career hunt. 

Now, let’s meet our awesome panel. Again, I’m Rob Stevenson, your humble host. Under normal circumstances, I host and produce Hired’s podcast, Talk Talent to Me, but desperate content calls from desperate measures. Today I am helping this webinar along its merry way and I couldn’t be happier to do so. Also here on the panel with us is the Co-Founder of Ladies Get Paid, Claire Wasserman. Claire, welcome to the webinar and would you mind sharing a little bit about your background and company?

Claire Wasserman

I started Ladies Get Paid in 2016 out of extreme frustration and anger around the wage gap and the leadership gap. Before I started Ladies Get Paid, I wasn’t a recruiter but I worked in the recruitment space. I was Director of Marketing for a company that connected talent in advertising, tech, and design. Ladies Get Paid is all about education so we do webinars, conferences, and summits – anything to bring women the tools to make more money and live better. 

We also have a global community because there’s a lot of power in peer-to-peer sharing, just as much as there are experts sharing. I’m deeply motivated to get women, specifically, into positions of power and I think it begins with asking for more. Negotiating is a way we can at least have agency over our own wage gaps. 

It really can change not only your life and this year’s paycheck, but generations to come, families, and communities. There’s so much power in speaking up, standing up, and asking for more…
