LEARN Sessions - Career Reincarnation

LEARN academy

Drawing from a professional past-life to attain nirvana in a tech career For those of us coming to web development for a career change, the transition can be overwhelming. It’s common to feel insecure about looking for a dev job when your resume seems to have no relatable experience. However, with the right approach, you can turn your past accomplishments from virtually any job into a marketable asset on your tech-facing resume. Join us as we look at reframing those past job skills and strengths into a list of assets for your job hunt. You’ll also learn to turn episodes from pre-tech past into stories that your interviewers will want to hear. Kevin Kochanski is Client Liaison at Notch8, a web and mobile development agency in San Diego. Before attending LEARN Academy in 2018, Kevin worked for a market research company where his acumen for identifying good candidates led him to his role as Human Resources Manager. To date, he has 10+ years of experience sorting thousands of resumes into piles marked “Best Ever” and “No Never.”
