About this event

Changing careers doesn't have to be scary! Join us at Flatiron School for a candid discussion with fellow women in tech who transitioned from a witches' brew of careers to land roles in the tech industry. We'll be discussing their transition into tech, from BOO-tcamps, to hair-raising interviews, to navigating company occult-ure. We'll wrap up the evening with time for a Q&A and networking over spooky snacks.
