About Me

Continuing To Learn

After I finished college, I knew that I wanted to continue to learn throughout my life. Instead of being stuck in a dead-end job, I started going back to school to learn how to do different tasks like woodworking and programming. It was really challenging at first, but little by little, I could tell that my education was starting to blossom. I was really pleased to feel accomplished and successful, and it was great to use my new skills in my everyday life. I wanted to make this blog to help other people to be motivated to learn and grow.

Networking Your Way Into A Networking Career

Knowing how to code and being tech-savvy is an important part of breaking into the tech industry, but your career will be crippled if you are not also able to network. Many of the best tech positions are never listed, and you can only access them based on who you know.

Come Prepared for Networking Events

One of the most effective ways to network is through a technology networking event. However, you will want to get started before the event to make the most out of it. Find out some of the key topics that will be discussed at the event and begin discussing these topics through social media. For example, find out what hashtags are associated with the event and begin tweeting with these hashtags.

Discussing tech through social media is a great way to demonstrate your technical expertise and is also a great way for you to network by itself. However, by being part of the conversation before the event even occurs, you will be prepared to continue the conversation in-person.

Remember that the goal of a networking event is to meet others, not to simply promote yourself and what you are working on. Therefore, when having conversations, you should share something about yourself, but should also try to learn about what others are working on. You must treat the event as an exchange of ideas.

Find a Mentor

Try to find someone who has technical skills that you would like to master and whom you can also mentor. By having a two-way mentoring relationship, you will not only make a valuable business contact, but you will also improve your skills. Even if you have nothing to offer, many mentors love to help those who are motivated to master an area of expertise.

Don't Skip Job Fairs

Since you are looking for work, you should participate in every job fair you can find. You may snatch an entry-level job. There may be job fair participants who are willing to provide you with guidance so you can more easily break into an industry that your talents are aligned with.

Attend a Summit

Participate in networking summits that are designed to teach skills. This way, at the very least, you will update your skills and improve your ability to build secure networks. A summit is where you can have access to the latest discoveries and where you can discuss the future of networking. These events are almost a requirement for those who work in networking.
