How To Take Control and Accelerate Your Career

Getting a job in tech can be one of the most challenging yet rewarding decisions you’ll make in your career. Not only does the tech industry pay well, it also offers great benefits and opportunities that can help you accelerate your career at a much quicker pace. However, due to the irrational, inefficient, inconsistent, and overwhelming hiring process, landing and securing a tech role can be quite difficult. First, you have to get noticed by the company. Then, you must navigate the recruiter screen, hiring manager screen, full set of interview loops, and negotiate your offer. And, despite all the talk of diversity and equity, if you are a member of an underrepresented group, you are at an even greater disadvantage due to many systemic biases in the system.

I was fourteen years old when I got my first job as a grocery store clerk earning a whopping $5 an hour – working to repay my debt to my parents for $1200 worth of baseball cards.

Throughout all of these experiences, I’ve continuously looked to accelerate my career and one concept still triumphs above most.

It’s Not a Pipeline Issue

Let’s cut to the chase, because we’ve spent more than a decade discussing tech’s diversity problem and have gotten “meh” results at best.

How tech gets candidates and hires employees is biased. It rewards those privileged enough to have access to people on the inside (or to know somebody who does). And once you’re hired, it rewards those who are more likely to attract the attention of mentors and sponsors—primarily pasty white dudes like myself.
