Practical Advice and Inspiring Stories
Even though the book was published back in 2016, it has become anything but irrelevant. That’s because “Women in Tech” combines practical career tips and personal stories from female entrepreneurs and tech professionals.
The goal is to motivate women everywhere and show what a career in the field looks like or can look like. Included are tips on
- The secrets of salary negotiation
- The best format for a resume in tech
- How to master a job interview
- The secrets of mentorship
Plus, the book is a hit to pass along to your mentees or women you want to encourage to get into the industry. I’m sure that has something to do with the fact that “Women in Tech” – launched with a Kickstarter campaign – doesn’t get much geekier than this!
