With 2022 already here, I thought this would be fitting! After crossreferencing and triangulating many sources, these were the ones that were mentioned the most!
If your goal is to break into tech out of college or from a non-tech background, look into these! They can be achieved through bootcamps, projects, building portfolios, apprenticeship/internships/co-ops!
Are you interested in any of them? Why? Is there another role here you think should be on the list?

The poverty rate in the US is 22% for the Black population (among the highest), so they can’t access the resources and knowledge the privileged can through paid courses or even higher education. I make this information accessible through YouTube on how to improve your chances on getting a better job through tailoring your resume to companies and jobs – a skill most people don’t have! As many are laid off or furloughed due to Covid-19, this resource is great to help you get back up on your feet.
Too many people don’t realize sending the same resume out isn’t effective at all. You’re actually supposed to tailor your resume to each job and company you apply to. If you’re wondering why you didn’t get a call for an interview, this could be the reason why. I know this is a tough time when it comes to job and internship search especially with Covid19, so I filmed this video on how I tailored my resume to land a technology consulting job at Accenture as my first entry level job out of college! Also, to keep it interesting, I created a mock resume of my cat, so that may get you to laugh a little. 😊
My channel focuses on professional development but I also highlight my experience, lifestyle, and insights into a career in technology consulting in hopes to encourage more women to consider this amazing career – especially in STEM! I do have videos on how exactly I got my job at Accenture, so look out for that!
Any questions at all about the resume tips I provided or about Accenture or technology consulting, please let me know!
