Tech Mentoring

Drive your career in tech

Have you finished your degree but still don’t feel you’re up to speed with the technology you need to grow your career? Do you need help upskilling? Are you not sure what kinds of professional opportunities are even available to you? [Read this in Chinese here].

If you’re in tech, you probably know and understand well how difficult it is to develop your professional expertise. Fortunately, there are some great resources out there to improve your coding skills, your professional development, and your networking (see below).

What do you not know that you need to know?

You may be just starting out, and find that the university courses fall short of what you need to be employable in a fast-moving marketplace, as technology itself evolves more quickly than even the courses you’ve taken! You may be wanting to develop skills in areas such as: JavaScript, SQL, Backbone.js, HTML, CSS, jQuery, Java Android Studio, Ruby on Rails, 3D modeling, hobby game development, Python, back end challenges like node, express.js, mongoDB, UI/UX — to name but a few. The list is endless. In my travels and communications, I’ve met people wading their way through all of the above, desperately wanting some additional personal support to go to the next level!

Or, maybe YOU can offer personalized mentorship to help upskill a hopeful learner in one of/ those above areas?

Even if the concern is moving into a new role, into a different company, and wanting some support with skills, learning how to network and more, we would love to have mentors and mentees providing career guidance.
