Meet the Women Tech Leaders at Fast-Growing Startup Guru
If you are a tech professional in the greater Philadelphia area and you'd like to attend this event, please email email@example.com with your name and LinkedIn URL to be considered for an invite.
Attention Philadelphia! PowerToFly is ecstatic to be hosting our first-ever event in Philadelphia and we couldn't think of a better company to be presenting it with than Guru, the dynamic, fast-growing startup that's based right in the city.
Launched in September 2015, Guru's mission is to reinvent the way people connect with meaningful information at work. They're a knowledge network that knows when, how, and where to deliver knowledge to you without you having to look for it. Using AI, Guru suggests relevant knowledge to you in real-time in every application you work in. The more you use Guru, the smarter it gets. Awesome, right?
If you'd like to hear more, then I'd love for you to join us on Wednesday, December 11th from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm at North American Building, 121 S. Broad Street, 10th Floor, Philadelphia. Complimentary food and refreshments will be served.

Guru's impressive roster of customers includes Slack, Square, Zoom, Spotify, Dell, Shopify, Buzzfeed and many more. In fact, here's what one Account Executive at Slack had to say: Guru works wonders for our sales team. We're finding information faster when on a call with a merchant. It's my favorite sales enablement solution I've ever worked with.
This invite-only event is the perfect opportunity to learn more about Guru directly from the women tech leaders and allies behind this innovative product. The event will include an informative product demo, insightful panel discussion and plenty of opportunity to network with both your peers and members of the Guru team over food and drinks.
While you don't need to be looking for new opportunities in order to attend the event, Guru is hiring. Their benefits include an employee stock option plan, health and commuter benefits, and a dog-friendly office! Read more about Guru's upbeat and engaged culture HERE.

I have a friend whose discerning toddler refuses to eat her preschool lunch unless it's in a bento box. I get it; baby carrots are much more appealing when stacked in their little compartment than not. That made me think: when did adult lunchtime stop being fun? When did a soggy sandwich brought from home or a $12 bowl of greens, scarfed down in 10 minutes while scrolling through emails, come to define midday sustenance? Enter adult lunchables.
A Q&A with Netskope's Senior Engineering Manager May Yan
May Yan has spent most of her impressive decades-long engineering career in California, but I asked her to take me back to the beginning — to when she first moved to the Golden State from China to get her Master's Degree in Computer Engineering at Santa Clara University. Were there any challenges, I wondered, as she adjusted to life and corporate culture in the U.S.?
It's pretty common in your 20s and 30s to feel like you're treading water financially – dealing with the immediate bills and expenses and not thinking too far beyond the next year or two. But this is the ideal time to think about the financial objectives you want to achieve. The best rewards don't come without risks, and there's no better time to start setting goals and taking chances.
In an interview, it's hard to anticipate what questions an interviewer will ask, but there is one that they are guaranteed to ask every single time (and it may be the most important question of the interview): "Do you have any questions for me?"
