Is Tech Right for You? Take The 3-Minute Quiz

Figure out your tech personality and what kind of career in tech is right for you.

Every January, the internet is flooded with articles about resolutions and detoxes. Then there are the follow-up articles about how the majority of us won’t keep those commitments for the next 365 days—which got us talking. What if instead of year-long goals about how to change who you are for the better, we focus on step-by-step actions you can take to change the situation you’re in for the better? Cue Making Moves Week.

Over the next few days, we’re going to publish articles on career pivots, transitions, and power moves. Whether you’re dreaming of making an industry change or trying to figure out a way to (finally) ask for that promotion, Making Moves Week is for you.

Because a career pivot isn’t about changing who you are, it’s about changing where you are. And that shouldn’t take a year.
