What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I have been in the DevOps field for about eight years and wanted to find ways to grow my career with a growing company.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
I felt there was no career path at the old company, and my skills were underutilized. I selected Seen after receiving a communication and learning about the service it provided.
How did Seen ease your job search?
Setting up the Seen profile was different than the resume posting service. It was based more upon describing the skills I wanted to advertise. There were open text fields where I could describe in my own words what I was looking for in my next position. It provided a way to express who I was and what I wanted, not just a place to post my resume.
What excites you most about your new role?
I find the way in which they are utilizing technology to help and enhance humans is revolutionary, and I’m very excited to be a part of the highly skilled team which is making that happen. They are also positioned for a lot of growth over the next few years, which will allow me to grow my career in new ways.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Be honest about who you are and what you want. Don’t accept the first offer you receive. Don’t give up.
