We’ve worked with thousands of job seekers--many of whom are looking to break into tech for the first time. And when we ask what barriers they perceive about breaking into tech, we hear things like: being too old, being too young, not having enough experience, having too much experience, not wanting to "start over", and not knowing if there’s space for YOU specifically in the tech industry. The truth? You do belong!
Regardless of your target role or age, we believe there is a place for EVERYONE in the tech industry. That doesn’t mean every company is a match, but the truth is: you don’t need every company to be a match. So whether you are fresh out of an educational program, burnt out in your current career, don’t have a degree, or at the end of your career (and all of the spaces in between), we want you to join us.
So come hang with WorkWell Founders, Whitney and Lucy, for a community-centric workshop that you’ll walk away from with tools, knowledge, and connections to take empowered steps toward your new job in tech. They’ve coached 1000+ people into high-paying tech jobs and know exactly what it takes to land both technical and non-technical roles at a company you are actually excited about!
Whitney's career began in the service and retail industries, waiting tables in Washington, DC and supporting people at Apple's genius bar.
