Excelling at Your First Tech Job: Made Easy

Friday, September 20, 2019 — 4:00PM-5:00PM


Finding your first job after college can be quite challenging, but what is even more challenging is keeping up with what the job demands. Your first job demands more than just strong academics. You will need different industry skills to deliver at work every day, which more often than not, are not covered in your college academic syllabus. With the advent of massive open online courses (MOOCs), access to the learning resources has become easier than ever before. However, the process of online learning can be overwhelming with a variety of MOOC providers. The goal of the session is to empower those who are early in their careers, with resources for relevant skills that their jobs demand. We will share tips to stay motivated throughout the learning process. By the end of the session, attendees will leave with a curated list of resources of current software industry skills in demand.
