Dream Of Working In Tech? Join A Resume Workshop With Google Recruiters, Bria Sullivan And Tech Stack’d
Google gets more than 2 million applications a year and hires 7,000 people. The odds seem insurmountable, yet working in tech remains a dream job for many, and Google wants to help.
Bria Sullivan, a Google engineer and mobile-app developer, is building an online community to help underrepresented adults get jobs in tech, and she’s drawing on her Google network to make it happen.
Sullivan founded online community Tech Stack’d to help Black techies advance their careers in tech, and she offers workshops.
“I started Tech Stack’d to fill in the gaps that cause underrepresented people to fail when trying to join the tech space. When looking at what privileges I had to help me get to a role at Google, I noticed that many of these privileges are not available to people who look like me around the country.” — Bria Sullivan, founder, Tech Stack’d
An upcoming resume workshop with Google recruiters is scheduled for 4 p.m. PST on Jan. 15. Here’s your chance to tailor your resume for a big tech company and stand out.
Tech Stack’d is for people who want to start a tech company or have a career in tech such as software engineering. By recognizing common pitfalls, Tech Stack’d works to fill in the gaps that cause many underrepresented people to fail when trying to break into tech.
Sullivan told Moguldom that she bootstrapped Tech Stack’d herself. Membership to Tech Stack’d is free for now. Members get access to virtual workshops to help them advance their careers or grow their companies. Each workshop is targeted to developers or entrepreneurs.
