"Why a techie needs a personal brand (and why now more than ever)"
As a developer, finding new ways to stand out in a crowd of other devs is becoming more and more necessary. Whether it’s to land a role or leverage your opportunities, building your personal brand is the new CV. Sadly, though there are a lot of myths around personal branding, and how it might be just for extroverts, or those who have a personal brand might seem… stuck up. Join Rachel as she speaks about:
-Why it’s getting more important now more than ever to have a personal brand as a developer. -Why a personal brand isn’t just for extroverts. -Debunking personal brand myths. -How you can use your personal brand to leverage your opportunities, get better pay and to ditch the CV.
Rachel develops and implements strategic large-scale people and tech opportunities around cultural growth, innovation, transformation, and employee experience.
With a background in computing and software development, Rachel is a tech speaker, mentor, DEI ally, STEM advocate and community builder. At Techyrey.com, Rachel speaks about tech career advice, leadership, self development & personal brand, and hosts TechyChats vlog series with inspiring guests and opening the door to tech.
