#YourTechStory: How to Showcase Your Story and Skills During Technical Interviews

The most common myth about technical interviews is that they only focus on your coding ability! In reality, technical interviews are about showing how your story and professional experiences will add value to a potential company, team and/or role. Translation: you need to highlight both your technical and soft skills to stand out from the pack!

In this workshop, you will craft your story by 1) identifying the key skills recruiters are looking for at each stage of the interview process, 2) creating a memorable 30-second elevator pitch, 3) developing examples that show (and not just tell) the value you can add beyond your resume and 4) learning a framework that highlights your thought process during coding questions! Get ready to define and share #YourTechStory.
