#YAPLive: Breaking Into The Tech Industry Career Panel on Clubhouse

How can you break into the tech industry and land a successful career doing something that you love?


Today on the show Hala is joined by industry experts, top recruiters and career coaches to discuss how you can more effectively land those interviews in the tech field, and how you can blow them away during that interview. 


The tech industry has been strong over the last several years: IT unemployment continues to shrink, salaries inch higher each year and innovation continues to create exciting career opportunities. In fact, a recent survey found that 86 percent of businesses have trouble finding tech talent and the gap is only getting bigger and job opportunities projected to grow 11% by 2029.


In this episode, Hala and friends chat about how using your personal brand can speak volumes when trying to break into the industry, and how getting used to industry language and key terms before you’re actually in the field can help give you the confidence you need.  The panel also covers how to stand out amongst a sea of resumes, ace your interview and sky rocket your career once you have your foot in the door.
