You're good at what you do. Great, even.
And you know there's more out there for you than your industry can provide.
In other words, you see the ceiling -- and you don't like it.
You've heard that high tech is amazing for its growth opportunities, for your upward mobility, and for having an impact on the world at a scale other organizations can't begin to touch.
But how do you get in there? CAN you even get in? Do you have to start at the bottom, with some entry level job, and work your way up? How can you get noticed, not to mention accepted?
Let me clear some things up for you.
Hey :) My name is Adi, and throughout my time working in tech, hiring (and firing) talent, and eventually helping clients in my private coaching practice break into tech jobs, I've noticed trends that come up again and again for job seekers.
These are myths or mistakes that I see many people buy into that prevent them from successfully creating a career in tech:
1) The first thing you must know, is that TECH JOBS GO FAR BEYOND JUST "DEVELOPERS." There's everything from operations to business development to sales to marketing to project management and beyond. If you've got the skills from another industry, you can use them here -- you just need to learn the environment.
2) Second, if you already have work experience, you do NOT need to "downgrade" and go for entry level jobs. You just need to learn to identify your transferable skills, and then translate them so that they register as a match for what tech companies are looking for.
3) Third, and this may sound less optimistic than you were hoping for: You must understand that THE HIRING GAME IS RIGGED AGAINST YOU. It's not personal, of course. But hiring managers want to de-risk the process as much as possible, and that causes them to dismiss anyone who isn't an obvious, perfect fit. That's why in order to even get your foot in the door, you must side-step that game completely and do things differently than people whose resume is already a perfect match.
Fortunately, I've developed a system that helps you do just that. It's everything you need to get from your current position (even if you are currently unemployed) to a job in tech that you will love. Nothing more (because excess information delays transformation), and nothing less (because obviously).
Break Into Tech Academy is an integrated 8-week program designed to help you identify your ideal job in tech, and then stand out as the most relevant candidate for the job, even though you're coming from "the outside."
Read on to check out what the program includes and what we'll cover.
In addition to your three 1-on-1 sessions, each week we'll have one live (virtual) 90-minute class covering a crucial topic, and one live (virtual) group "UnCoaching" session to help you implement the lesson.
These are the topics we'll cover, week by week:
A strong understanding of the high tech landscape + intense clarity on what's a perfect fit for YOU = a force multiplier for your job search productivity and effectiveness. No more wasting time pursuing avenues that aren't actually relevant for you or that employer. Hyper-focus is the name of the game and Week 1 gets you there.
It's all in who you know, but what if you don't know anyone "important enough"?
