Debating on coming to the Virtual Career Fair tomorrow? Hear from one of Cameo's recent hires through PTF, Ashlee Crusco. "I joined PowerToFly after a Women in Tech meetup I attended a while back. I had never heard of Cameo until the career fair. I had been casually looking, keeping my options open since my company was having to downsize but then right around the time of the career fair our senior engineer quit. Knowing my job was secure I didn’t follow up with Julia when she reached out, luckily for me she tried again and more than once. One day she called and texted me (that made me feel like more than just 1 of many, Julia knew Cameo was perfect for me before I did!) and I happened to be out for a walk and we were able to connect. Cameo sounded like an amazing opportunity and I decided I had to give it a shot. Throughout the entire process Julia was so helpful and encouraging, I needed that and am so grateful for the nudges that she gave me throughout the process. Cameo is such a great fit for me, the size of the company and the focus on product are exactly what I was looking for, a good amount of the tech stack is newer to me so there is much opportunity to learn and grow. I have a non-traditional background (actor, bootcamp grad) and have a hard time getting “through the door” and then when I do there is a lot of imposter syndrome and doubt to fight through. I felt completely comfortable sharing my concerns and questions with Julia and she knew exactly how to help. Having a community like PowerToFly to make these connections is so helpful and from my experience throughout the interview process for Cameo, a recruiter who is willing and able to see more than my resume made all the difference."

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

5 Tips for Career Switchers: Insight from Work & Co’s Sarah Mogin on Making Use of Your Past Lives

Sarah Mogin never used to like writing open-ended essays in school. She found herself much more motivated by tangible problems.

Calculus had some of those—she never had trouble with her math homework—but when she was in school she never envisioned just how much she could incorporate that love of solution-finding into her daily work, much less that she would have a career as a developer one day.
