What is Speed Mentoring?
Speed Mentoring is a great way to find a mentor, be a mentor, learn something new, and build your network in tech. Speed mentoring == networking that doesn't suck! Learn from other professiols, share what you know, and make a few friends along the way. :)
We especially seek mentors and mentees in software development and design, QA, data science, product management, and more.
Our Cleveland Speed Mentoring sessions will take place in conjunction with the Tech Jobs Tour Cleveland tour stop at Hub 55 (Learn more about Tech Jobs Tour, below.) Email [email protected]
with any questions.
About Tech Jobs Tour | Cleveland
At the heart of this tour is a commitment to diversity and economic opportunity for all Americans. This recent election, we saw our country more divided than ever. American talent resides all across the country in red states and blue states. It's time to invest in talent outside of Silicon Valley, NY and Boston. Right now America has over 500,000 open tech jobs — by 2020 this number will grow to over 1.4 million. The demand for qualified tech workers can only be met by reassessing how we qualify candidates as 60% of all new coders, engineers and data scientists are emerging from bootcamps and industry-current vocational schools. We must continue to innovate, empower small businesses and train our future workforce to meet the demands of the market. Our country’s history and future has all been fueled by innovation. We’ve gone from cars to coal to code in less than 100 years.
That’s why we are hitting the road to 50 cities — to help bridge the divide between employers and the American workforce by hosting career fairs, workshops, mentoring, networking and more. This is more than a jobs tour, it’s a listening tour. We will be bringing tech’s biggest innovators to cities across America, to learn, listen and work together to bring economic opportunity and prosperity to all Americans. Our goal is to push the industry towards a higher standard, a technology sector that is representative of the people who live in this country — women, people of color, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, veterans and more. We believe, together, we can and will change the face of technology to help American workers get the jobs they deserve.
