What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
I had been in my previous position for numerous years and there was no room for growth. I was not being challenged at work and wanted to look for new opportunities. The biggest frustration is trying to figure out what your next position will look like. For people without a specific career trajectory, it can be difficult knowing where you fit within company and also within the tech field. Seen came up as I was browsing for job on Indeed, and I decided it was worth a try. That was a good decision!
How did Seen ease your job search?
As I was applying to places through Indeed as well as directly through corporate websites, I liked the idea that Seen was also working on my behalf. I was not sure it would yield any results but it didn’t add any pressure to my job search. I appreciated that it left it up to the employers to determine how I might match the jobs they were hiring for.
What excites you most about your new role?
Learning and the potential for growth.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Use everything at your disposal. Not one way will work for everyone when it comes to getting a new position, but if the resources are there, take advantage of them.
