Session: Art of finding your first job in tech
There is nothing more overwhelming than looking for your first job in tech and simultaneously trying to manage your life as a student in a foreign country in the middle of a pandemic. I say it's an art because you have to figure out your style and strokes to recognize how to keep yourself on track while being under the immense stress of finding a job. I met some incredible "artists" aka mentors on my way who taught me certain tools and techniques to ace my job process ( FYI, I started from absolute scratch - no connections, no extraordinary credentials). I strive to give back to the community that helped me so much, and here are my two cents in this session.
- Navigating first Data science interview
- How to manage stress and mange your mental health.
- Managing time with college and job search
- Networking 101.
- Why is mentorship important?
