📼A technical application process requires some prior preparation. Play this video to get three top tips on how to navigate your interview journey. You'll hear from Daniel Bergholdt, Senior Technical Recruiter at Thumbtack, who shares his expertise in this field!
📼For a technical application process, social media is not enough. Tip #1: Have a formal resume. Your LinkedIn is great, but also have a formal resume handy. You must keep your LinkedIn updated with all of your technologies and recent projects, but it’s important to have a formal resume as well for when you're applying directly to the company.
📼In a technical application process concreteness is a value. Tip #2: Be specific. When reaching out, know what you're applying for. Being very specific about what you're targeting will greatly increase your chances of moving forward. When reaching out to a recruiter, let them know that you have already applied for a certain position and that you also want to showcase some of your skills to them.
A Technical Application Process Requires An Appropriate Language - Tip #3: Use Technical Communication
The biggest tip with interviewing is technical communication. You want to ask clarifying questions before you even start coding. It's also important to state all the assumptions to make sure that you fully understand the parameters of the question. And lastly, you want to essentially think out loud. Show the interviewer how you want to solve the problem.

💎Being nervous to negotiate a raise in your wage is not unusual. Watch the video to the end to know how to approach the negotiation stage the best way possible.
📼If you feel nervous to negotiate your salary, remember that if you don’t ask, the answer is always no. Play this video to get three top tips to learn negotiation skills. You'll hear from Mary Giles, Senior Technical Recruiter at CHG Healthcare, who has picked up the tips she shares in her 10 years of being a recruiter.
📼Avoid being nervous to negotiate by knowing what you want. Tip #1: Set Your Expectations. Ask about the salary range for the role you applied for in the initial screening with the recruiter and give your minimum requested salary. Most companies have a budget that they need to stay within, and it's better to be on the same page about that before moving forward in the process.
📼Feeling nervous to negotiate? Get backup data! Tip #2: Research Average Salary. Educate yourself on the average salary for your position. Salary.com and Glassdoor are great resources for you to see where your years of experience and skillset might put you in terms of salary.
You Won’t Feel Nervous To Negotiate If You Have Solid Reasons - Tip #3: Give Your Why
During the negotiation, give your “why”. When you're negotiating a new salary, there are a lot of people involved in the negotiation: the compensation team, the hiring team, and HR, and they all want a reason why they should offer you a higher salary. Are there any certifications you have that bring value? Maybe you worked on a project in your previous role that brings direct experience to an initiative this team is working on. So you'd be able to make an immediate impact. Don't forget to mention these things in your negotiation!

💎To make a successful career move, you need to follow some steps. Watch the video to the end to get ideas on how to achieve it!
📼Wondering how to make a non-traditional career move? Play this video to get three top tips that will guide you through the process. You'll hear from Lindsay Syhakhom, Cloud Solutions Architect at Logicworks, who shares her own experience in moving from a non-technical role into a technical role.
📼 Make a career move inside your company! Tip #1: Cross team boundaries. Volunteer for tasks that cross teams at your current organization. A lot of people assume that to change careers, they also have to change employers. And that's not always the case. You can lay the foundation at your current job for the career that you want to have. Look for teams in your organization that either partially align or even fully align to the position that you want. And then think of creative ways to interface with that team.
📼 Make a career move using your institutional knowledge! Tip #2: Become the expert. If you are applying to another team in your same company, one of the advantages to your company hiring you versus hiring somebody else is that you know what the company sells, you know how teams function and take seriously that that institutional knowledge is very important. Every company has its quirks. Knowing those things is going to help you when you're applying for the next job.
Make A Career Move Confidently! - Tip #3: Ask For What You Want
Before she applied to become a cloud solutions architect, Lindsay Syhakhom had conversations with members of her team and reached out to people on other teams at Logicworks that she really trusted and had the conversation with them first. This helped take the edge off of her first conversation with HR, and with a hiring manager about her desire to move into this other field, and get their feedback. Remember that you have to apply for the job. No one can read your mind and know that you want to make this non-traditional career move!
