The Interview Skills & Secrets Workshop really clarified a lot of the details related to finding a job as an engineer. The exercises and role-playing really made me think about what I wanted. It was a confidence booster to be realize I was the one in the position of power. I would recommend this workshop to anyone wanting to find a career in tech. It was especially helpful to our group of women, who have very diverse backgrounds and are looking to change careers.
