The First Step to Change Your Career is Taking Action
I'd like to thank you all for patiently waiting for the release of this newsletter.
In a quick recent recap, I recently decided to open my calendar to help people impacted by layoffs to bounce back to the job market. I not only saw a massive number of people interested in participating, as I also observed a big number of hiring managers and recruiters chiming in to help.
With your help, we made the message reach almost 150K people on LinkedIn, and spark the interest of almost 400 people. Among all of them, only ten people have been selected.
I once experienced the very situation you find yourself in now. I was laid off during the 2008 crash with no perspective to find another job as a software developer in a declining market. I got once again laid off in 2014 on a second wave, due to the economic conditions in my home country.
The reason I created this newsletter is to help you accelerate your career trajectory in the tech industry as software engineers, leaders, and managers, and land a fantastic role with distinguished ease compared to my past.
Now, you should be wondering why you should listen to me. Who does this guy think he is? Well, here's why I think I can help you:
- I've been hiring software engineers and engineering leaders for the entire past decade.
- I led organizations with more than a hundred engineers and other functions along the way.
- I sourced and interviewed more than 500 candidates in the last two years.
- I helped triage and select more than 50K resumes in the past two years alone (yes, that's unbelievable but true).
Also, as a hiring manager, I learned how to effectively recruit candidates. Using it to my own benefit, I reverse engineered the process, and landed interviews with all big tech, as seen in my post below.
I did all that during the pandemic, after the first batch of layoffs happened, with no big tech or FAANG credential on my resume. I was not different from you. If I could do it, you can too!
And to prove it, I will regularly post tips to help you get a new job, a better role, or that so desired and recognized promotion.
