About the Event
Join us for our Talking Case Study event on Getting into Tech as part of our Create a Future – Career theme, and be inspired!
Jess Sullivan, military spouse, reservist in the Canadian Military, and former teacher talks us through her journey from teaching to technology, explains the rationale behind her career change, and reveals the steps she took to achieve her goal.
Now working as a remote web developer for an award winning, multi-million-pound global events company, and with over a decade’s experience as a teaching professional, Jess is keen to inspire and help others transition into the Tech Industry – a career that incidentally works well alongside military life!
This is what she’ll be talking about:
- Why I was looking for a new career – the key drivers
- What inspired me to get into Tech
- How I learned to code
- The decision to quit my teaching job
- The application and interview process
- Where I am today
- How I can help you achieve the same as me
- My long-term goal
