What People Are Saying
My expectations were certainly exceeded and I got a lot out of this summit. I now know which jobs I want to apply to, have a better understanding of the transferrable skills I have, and have a much higher confidence level. This weekend solidified that my inner inkling to leave banking for tech was the right feeling to follow.
It was awesome and was definitely worth my time! This summit provided a much faster way to learn a lot of curated information than typical networking.
Loved hearing about the actual roles, projects, and day to day of the mentors. I am very new to my "break into tech" journey and honestly wasn't even sure before this summit if it was for me. Those panelists really helped solidify that I have the desire and the skillset to make a huge leap in my career from my 9-year stint in banking.
I have tangible next steps and resources, and I feel like my time in each session was well spent. It was awesome and was definitely worth my time!
