How to land a role at a major tech company
Locally, there are several major tech companies hiring: Microsoft, Amazon, Alphabet, Meta, and Apple. (called MAAMA now and was formerly FAANG) This session is not only for those who would like to eventually work at a MAAMA, but those just curious as to what it takes to land a role here. In this session, I will provide some tips for you to get noticed and hired. Some of the topics that will be covered include the following:
- Resume overhaul
- Interview preparation
- Securing an interview
- Salary negotiation
I will provide some tips for success for all of these stages for companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and Meta in this interactive presentation. Also, keep in mind that any of the topics above could warrant multiple sessions so consider this an abridged version or a “greatest hits”. I will also call upon the audience to contribute to help make this more interactive.
