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.
