Better Jobs With Companies That Care
Jan. 24. 2018
It's almost the end of January, meaning it's finally time to reflect on our New Year's resolutions, celebrate our progress, and re-work the things that may not have been as successful as others. One of our resolutions at PowerToFly was to learn more - from our community, events, and most importantly our colleagues (who are pretty impressive, just wait). This week, we bring to you our first Excel Masterclass: Filters and Functions, taught by our very own Senior Data and Web Analyst (and mom of two), Vanina. We're all busy women, so we've removed the fluff and ensured every second of this Masterclass is full of the information you need to impress your boss this January and help you get to the next level. Is there another topic you wish we'd cover - or a session you'd like to lead yourself? Send us a message on Networks and we'll add it to the list!

It was summer 2018, and she was sitting at work, watching a presentation by one of her then-employer's new leaders. The presenter was talking about personal growth and showed the room a slide of two images side by side.
Growing Your Career in Technical Support: 4 Tips for Getting Hired at Elastic from Support Director Heidi Sager
Heidi Sager loves math, but she also loves working with people.
She always has, which is why she enjoyed her part-time job working at the IT department of the University of Colorado while she was studying electrical engineering. (She'd started in computer science, but explains that it "wasn't for her" and switched her major.) She helped students and professors with word processors, basic programming, and software checkout, and took a full-time job after graduation as a UNIX system administrator.
Working at Relativity—the global tech company that equips legal and compliance professionals with a powerful data-organizing and discovery platform—looked different in 2020. The highly collaborative environment of their Chicago headquarters transitioned to a virtual setting, and just like companies around the country, Relativity adapted their goals and major projects to a completely remote environment.
