Know your skills

I gave this talk at the Geek Girls Carrots Meetup in December 2014 in Berlin.

The talk was inspired by a previous panel discussion, at which an HR manager stated that women quite often lack the confidence to speak about their skills and their achievements. But from my experience people often aren't aware of what they achieved and what skills they acquired in their career. Therefore the talk should provide some inspiration on how to keep record of ones learning curve and how to map acquired skills to potential new jobs.
