Cassidy Williams - How to Build a Career in Tech
This is a very informative and eye-opening interview. No matter your level of experience, I think you will get something out of this video. Cassidy shares some great stories and practical tips on how to thrive as a software developer. Cassidy has had an amazing career with some amazing experiences that are fun to listen to. She embodies the ethos of being everywhere. A concept that I first heard from Pat Flynn. Podcasts, newsletters, YouTube, Tik Tok, Twitter, conferences and interviews. Her hustle-based attitude is something we can all take inspiration from.
In this video, Eleftheria tells her story of how she landed her first programming job. The thing I really like about Eleftheria and this video is her attitude. Eleftheria did not sit back and wait for fate to give her a lucky break. Instead, she created a plan and then she went out and invested consistent effort to turn her goal into reality. All good videos finish with a happy ending and obviously, our tale ends with Eleftheria getting the job she deserved. No matter your level of coding experience, there are some great lessons on having the correct mindset that can be taken away from this video.
