3 thoughts on “Making Career Moves in Tech”
I have recently joined this event and must say this was one of the best events I have attended. The speakers and the host were very engaging and knowledgeable. I was seeking some advice on how to best transition into the tech industry (I am transitioning my career from a non-technical background into data analytics) and having this kind of support and help on my journey is extremely important. Besides getting amazing advice from the speakers, I got so much more. Kelly provided various very helpful resources and I had a chance to ask questions directly to the speakers, where I got the help I need. I highly recommend those events for job seekers and career transitioners. Big shout out to the host, speakers, and other participants for such a great event.
