"Thanks to all the workshops I attended, I was able to use all the skills to nail my interview and land an awesome opportunity with a great company. The workshops I attended (BootCamp and Art of Networking, just to name a few) helped me get out of my shell and gave me more confidence when it came to reaching out to potential employers. And thanks to the salary negotiating workshop, I learned how to negotiate salary, health/retirement benefits, work schedule, tuition reimbursement, and parking!"
