Tips and Info:

 

 Working for startups can be advantageous, you’ll have a chance to wear a lot of different hats, and you’ll get exposed to a larger slice of the company when compared to working at larger firms.

 

Always be open to new opportunities, cultivate a “why not?” attitude.

 

Cybersecurity and project management roles are in high demand.

 

Never underestimate networking, even after finding a job, it’s vital to keep your network alive.

 

Use LinkedIn!

 

It may not be obvious, but soft skills are essential in the field of technology.

 

Be sure to tailor your resume for each position you apply for.

 

Be tenacious, if your first email doesn’t get a response, don’t be afraid to try again!

 

Don’t get discouraged if you end up changing your job several times, these days, you’re not expected to stay at a company for 5+ years.
