Your business skills are valuable to technology companies

This is part 3 in a 3-part series. As promised, this is the third part in my series, “Do technology companies mind if you’re not technical?” The other day I was asked by a colleague if my position in the graduate program was through an IT or computer science degree, and if so did I […]

Technology companies do want you!

This is part 2 in a 3-part series. As mentioned in my last blog, if we are to become digital leaders, and keep up with the next generation of digital natives, we need to continue investing in our IT skills. For me, that was one of the driving factors in applying for a graduate position […]
