Happy Saturday, Tech Career Growth! If you're in California like us, I hope you're staying out of the smoke, and fingers crossed that we get the wildfires under control. If you're somewhere else in the world, we hope you're safe + productive.
Our next session is on Saturday, August 28 at 9am about creating a stellar tech resume: LinkedIn event. For the first time, we're going to leverage our community to help even more people (Kickstarter style). Depending on the attendee count on the event -- we're at 3.1K right now -- Alex is going to reveal his full resume at key junctures of his career. You can help out by sharing the LI event and inviting your connections. As usual, the session is completely free to attend.
Alex posted another "State of the Union" post here. Hopefully this gives you a sense of the growth this community has seen, along with a transparent look at how we're thinking about the future. Here's the Google Calendar for all our public sessions.
Our community-powered Q&A event was a great success! We answered the top 5 questions out of > 50 that were submitted (we received more than 1100 votes!). If you missed it, we put recap videos on my YouTube channel - full playlist here. Some highlights:
- How To Learn Optimally As A Junior Engineer - Breadth vs. Depth - the top question.
- How To Create A Perfect Tech Portfolio To Make Recruiters Come To You - My controversial take that LinkedIn has negative network effects.
We also answered questions around time management, self learning vs day job, and getting Big Tech interviews. Checkout the playlist for all the links.
See you all on the 28th!
