Just got out of college and are finding a way to pursue your dream in tech? No matter what major you opted for in college, it is time for you to brush up your skills and set yourself apart from other jobseekers in key startup markets. Here are a few tips that will surely aid you in landing a job in the world of tech:
If you are just getting out of college and can’t land a full-time role, internships are the best way to prepare yourself for a job search. You can start looking for internships in various tech startups in SF, Boulder, Seattle, Atlanta. Internships will help you make connections with key people in the industry. Keep in mind, that once you are out of college, it is on you to make it happen, but it is very hard to sometimes know where to start. Our bootcamps help you in the job hunt since we know the specific skills and experience that recruiters are looking for. What matters most, no matter if you take a bootcamp or an internship to start, is that you surround yourself with great people that can actively help you grow.
You can use your Twitter or Angel List account to communicate with different tech companies. If you are using Twitter, read an article and then make a thoughtful tweet about a company or person that makes it clear that you have taken the time to learn, share, and apparent that you want to give back.
If you have worked on personal projects, it is imperative you keep your GitHub profile updated. GitHub is a growing online platform for hosting and collaborating on projects. Many companies ask for GitHiub profiles so make sure you do not have to link them to an empty account.
A main reason we started Inside Sales Bootcamp was to help and give access to startup roles to students that might have the opportunity to live in a place like San Francisco, until they actually secure a job offer. Our goal is to help students launch their careers with sales roles, but we look for candidates with diverse backgrounds because we want people that are determined to do the work it takes and make it clear that they will do anything to make the jump.
What is most important, is that you are happy. Young professionals get caught up in a lot of the startup BS, and should always prioritize what makes them happy, then decide if a startup is the right place to launch a career.
