What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I have a mixed background in both Exercise Science and Technology. I’ve been wanting to find a position where I can use my cumulative experience in leading and innovating new ways of testing and tackling new problems.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
I started exploring new job opportunities when my current position was no longer challenging. There weren’t a lot of software opportunities where I was located, so I tried numerous forms of media to look for a perfect fit. I had a few interviews that just weren’t the right fit for me. I saw an ad on Indeed about their free Seen service and figured I didn’t have anything to lose.
How did Seen ease your job search?
I enjoyed Seen because I was able to describe what I was looking for in an opportunity and what my expectations were. I was contacted by a few different employers that were a great match to what I was looking for, and I was able to decline or agree to an interview without any pressure.
What excites you most about your new role?
Great pay, amazing benefits and it’s 100% remote so no more 44-minute commutes to and from work.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Don’t be afraid to wait. You don’t have to jump for the first offer that comes your way; you have the skills to acquire the job that best fits you.
