In a world where some of the most awesome jobs and companies are tech based ones, it can seem impossible to get through the door without being a strong coder or engineer. This session is aimed at showing people the career opportunities in the tech industry where your focus is on creating great experiences for your customers and leading the vision for apps and sites. I will go through the journey of how I started as someone interested in psychology and writing and turned that into a career where I get to build awesome game and video apps for kids.
How does someone not as good at coding/math/engineering get themselves into a tech career?
What kind of career opportunities exist at Nickelodeon digital that you might not think of?
How do you get your foot in the door at a major tech company?
I hope kids walk away from this session with a stronger sense of all of the career opportunities in tech that don't require a strong coding knowledge. I also hope kids learn that the path to a career is a winding one and that taking on as many opportunities as possible will help you figure out exactly what you want to do.

We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
