Built in CO shares tips on making career changes
In a recent article, Built in CO, an online community dedicated to helping tech professionals and job seekers learn about the industry, network, and carve out futures at tech companies they believe in, interviewed eleven women from Colorado tech.
Each shared her career change story: the moment they knew they were ready to grow, the steps they took to find jobs they were truly excited about, and the hardships they faced along the way.
Among the most common tips shared were “re-write your narrative,” “find a mentor you trust,” and “remember that it’s never too late.”
When Senior Product at Workiva, Catherine Gee, expressed interest in product management to her then-manager, she gained a mentor. Her manager advocated on her behalf for her transition and supported her during the process. From there, Gee took time to find opportunities to show her value and skillset to a new team at Workiva.
