Rewriting the Game – Getting a Technical Job

Danielle Hubbard, a friend of mine from Midwestern State University, recently gave a talk at ACT-W in Portland.

In her talk, titled “Rewriting the Game”, Danielle talks about her own career, specifically how she got her first job, and what she learned from that process.

Danielle starts speaking at 2:44:30, but some of the best advice I saw happened at about 2:52:41.

Some of my favorite quotes of Danielle’s were:

“Don’t make excuses for being a badass. Don’t self deprecate.”

“Are you ready to take ownership of whatever makes you awesome and sell that to whoever is buying?”
