An Inside Look at Our Event with Symantec

Since the PowerToFly team is based all around the world (we have team members on every continent except Australia and Antarctica) we love it when our journeys take us outside of the United States. That's why we were thrilled to partner with a truly global company, Symantec, to present an evening for software and support engineers in Toronto, Canada on November 7th.


Hosted by PowerToFly's Cristina Duke, the event featured a mix of presentations, panel discussions and networking and featured several of Symantec's women tech leaders and male allies.

The intimate event kicked off with networking over food and drinks before Cristina formally welcomed out attendees. She then passed the mic over to two amazing male allies: Andrew Porteous, Manager, Technical Support and Kristopher Persad, Associate Manager, Technical Support who dove a bit deeper into life at Symantec and expanded upon the role of software and support engineers there.

Next up, we welcomed a diverse panel from throughout Symantec to comment on their career journeys both in and out of the organization. This fabulous panel included Junko Sadamitsu, Sr. Technical Support Engineer; Grace Saati, Enterprise Account Manager; and Beatrice Dias, Enterprise Security Account Manager.

The night concluded with plenty of time for our guests to continue to network with their peers and members of the Symantec team before we needed to call it a night. Overall, it was a great Ontario evening and we can't wait to go back.

6 Tips to Get Hired After a Hiatus

In my mid-20s I developed a brain tumor that needed to be surgically removed (7 years tumor free today, woo hoo!). After recovering from brain surgery and realizing that the job I had may have been a contributor to my stress, I took a hiatus from working to concentrate on finding myself.

After discovering what really made me happy (making bagels from scratch) and what made me not so happy (how I felt after eating a ton of bagels from scratch), and my savings started to dwindle, I decided I needed to figure out how to get back to work after my career break.
