What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I just finished a PhD in Computer Science with a number of internships and part time work with newer companies and startups
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
As I finished school, I didn’t know how much I was worth. So instead of just taking the offer to go straight into full time work with my current employer, I came to Seen to have an easy way of seeing what other employers thought that I was worth.
How did Seen ease your job search?
After filling out my Seen profile, I was able to get about 5 requests for interviews in about a week, 2-3 of which were very relevant to the type of job that I was looking for.
What excites you most about your new role?
I’m most excited about the new challenge that I will be helping to tackle as well as the team and work environment.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Don’t hesitate to use sites like Seen. But you will need to apply directly to the larger companies as they won’t have listings here because they won’t have a shortage of resumes sent to them.
