Reinventing yourself and your career is not an easy feat. In our pursuit of enjoyment through employment, it can often feel like a daunting and unsurmountable roadblock to overcome. How do you pivot your brand from being an expert in one thing (and quite frankly being exceptional at it) that doesn’t fulfill you to a new brand that positions your unique experiences as your value proposition in a business role in tech.

Luckily, Sumant Yerramilly, our featured Empjoyee, lays out a step by step roadmap based on his experience. He takes it a step further by also sharing the top 2 pillars for successful career transitions into tech and what he looks for when hiring people for his team.

  • Articulate your experience when you have variety of skill sets that don’t seem to lead to a specific role (at least not on paper…)
  • Leverage two key principles to differentiate yourself from other candidates applying for a role
  • Approach product management with a “sell before you build” mentality to enhance company success and client satisfaction
