Work Day In the Life as a Google Solutions Architect in NYC | #redmondonamazon #blender #smoothies

I’ve finally ramped up and working full speed towards the holidays with my clients. Being an advertising solutions architect in shopping at Google, I work with retail clients preparing for the holiday season on their shopping feeds and feature activation. I also went into the office (the 9th ave NYC office) and brought Addison, Derek, and Christy over as well to also celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival at Google! Check out this vlog and see what I’ve been up to!

Aparna Srinivasan: SpotOn.Pet Founder, Tech Entrepreneur, Dog and Pig Owner | WOMEN OF INSPIRATION

As a cat owner, cat sitter, woman in tech, and entrepreneur, I have a deep appreciation for Aparna and SpotOn for the value and solution it provides for me as someone who always has a need to transport cats! I sit down with Aparna (and her pet pig!) for this episode. SpotOn.Pet is a ride-hailing transportation app for pets and pet-parents. The app connects you with trusted drivers that will take your pet anywhere, with or without you being present. From airports, to parks, & even vet visits, you can only phone a friend so many times or pay hundreds for a car service, to carry your pet safely to where they need to go. I go through Aparna’s experience as CEO and founder of SpotOn.Pet as well as the future of SpotOn.Pet!

Google NYC Office: Noogler Lessons Learned

I took @addisonjchen to the Google office! We’re finally allowed social guests in the NYC office! Took this photo at the rooftop terrace on 9th Ave’s 14th floor with sweeping views of NYC skyline and beautiful weather.

Lessons I learned so far:
⭐️ Embrace being new! Being an experienced hire this time around, I felt pressured to know a lot on the get go, but it’s okay to just start all over! Every company does things differently and take your time.
⭐️ Explore and learn as much as you can! The offices, the culture, the people, the work, the crossfunctional teams, the workshops and courses, everything!
⭐️ It really is what you make of it! If you are not proactive, there will be missed opportunities. Jump on it and ask what you can work on or try out or even shadow before being asked to!

Lots more coming in a video soon!

Work Day In My Life as a Google Solutions Architect in NYC | Working From Home, Cats, Broadway Show

I finally have ramped up to client work after 3-4 months of being a Noogler (but we’re all technically still Nooglers!) as a Google Advertising Solutions Architect in Google Shopping, and this is an accurate depiction of my work day in my life at home at work, being a cat sitter and a cat parent, and going out for the Broadway Show, POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive at night! Thank you, Hydragun, for sponsoring this video!

Hydragun was perfect for me as someone who is always on the go in the office, around the city as a big walker, and also as someone who works from home at a desk. It’s surprisingly quiet that no one heard me through my work calls, and there are so many applicators depending on where you would want to use your Hydragun and also if you wanted to apply lotions and oils as well!

Ways to Learn and Upskill in Tech

For some reason when people ask me what they can do to learn and upskill in tech, most of the times the paid courses and training or higher education is the first thing that comes to mind. However, look at this list! MOST of this is free and accessible to anyone that has access to a device that has Internet connection!

When I try to learn and upskill in tech, I resort to YouTube for crowdsourced information (watching many different videos), cross reference Google, YouTube, Quora, or Reddit for answers on targeted questions, network with professionals in areas of interest on what they have done to get to where they are, and do a lot of personal projects and research. Google search and YouTube were my go to for troubleshooting, researching, and getting questions answered. All are free! Plus, you get to grow your network with amazing people!

How about you?

WORK WEEK IN MY LIFE VLOG: My Last Week at Accenture | Rolling Off, Transitioning, Going to Office

I landed a technology consulting job at Accenture when I graduated back in 2018, and I’ve been at Accenture for 3 years, so I’m bittersweet for closing this chapter with this last week vlog! It has been an amazing experience whether it be meeting people (Accenture and clients), amazing experiences and memories, and all of the wealth of knowledge I learned about navigating the workplace, client engagements, and Accenture in general! Here’s a last tribute to my time at Accenture with this vlog from rolling off my last client project, transitioning off with knowledge transfer sessions for the multiple hats I wear, and going to the office and saying goodbye! It’s not a goodbye, but rather a see you later!

Testimonial

Even though I’m no longer in a consulting firm, there will still be tech consulting content (and I can be a little more candid now with no conflict of interest) as well and this time more content about my experience and time in a FAANG (or is it MANGA now?) company!

I’m all about transparency to allow others to make informed decisions about their careers and for people who didn’t know such careers and paths are available to them to start their journey!

I left my technology consulting job at Accenture for… | WHY, HOW, WHERE TO NEXT?

This has been a big secret I’ve been holding for three months now! My last day as a Workday Financials technology consultant at Accenture was March 2, 2022 and my first day at my new company and new role starts on March 14! I explain why I start looking, how I started looking, the timeline of what exactly happened (separate video on the actual interview process coming soon!) and the big reveal of my new role and company! So excited for this new step in my career!
