Senior Director, Pantheon Platform
"Given my known challenges to pivot into tech, I got creative to network off-campus through various channels and had targeted outreach. Additionally, I was diligent on follow-up. You could say I became my own BDR and outbounded for career opportunities."
Product Manager, Samsung
"The Product Manager role is a great fit for people looking for ownership of a product. I got a flavor of the Product Marketing role through MAP and my internship. I wanted more ownership of the product, so I recruited for PM instead of PMM in the second year.”
Director of Go-to-Market Public Relations, VMware
“Use your time at Ross to test your assumptions about what industries and roles will be interesting to you. I spent my internship at PepsiCo, but then I re-recruited for a full-time role in technology. I chose to go into tech because I find it really fascinating, and I like the challenge. But in 5 or 10 years, I may choose to go into another industry. Your career isn’t linear.”
Director of Product, Reddit
"If you know tech is where you want to be, learn about the roles that appeal to you and don't get distracted by the craziness of on-campus recruiting (consulting, banking, etc). Focus and perseverance will ultimately pay off."
Global Sales Strategy Manager, Salesforce
“Tech Club made me feel a lot more confident about the interview process in general. Talking about how to case was helpful, and the Sunday sessions were also very useful. I thought the biggest value-add was getting more bats at interviewing."
