Empathizing with Hiring Managers: The User Experience of a Job Search
As Campus Director of The Iron Yard - Nashville, I've spent two years running a Career Support program at an immersive code school. I've worked directly with Middle Tennesse companies and our each one of our graduates, to find help match junior level developers and designers with growing organizations. We'll dive in to the best practices for getting on a company's radar and then flip the perspective, optimizing your search for the end user, the hiring manager. While this talk will cover the foundational elements of getting your first job in the tech indutsry, I believe it also reinforces some core prinicpals that are helpful for us all. This talk will be followed by a brief Q&A, so if you've got a burning question about how to get hired, I'd love to answer it!
