You probably hear people say that the “hot careers” are in tech.
They talk about visionaries who are developing the next TikTok or Instagram. Data skills that lead to competing job offers. Post-graduation salaries near (or even over) $100,000.
But is all that for you?
And if it is, how do you get there from here?
In this FREE 1-hour program, Break Through Tech Chicago can set you on the path to finding out. Take 60 minutes to see what tech can do for you — and make some new friends way before classes even start.
Who: New female and nonbinary students who are starting at UIC this fall and who have an interest in getting to know technology and data. You can be in any UIC college and any major (including undecided).
When: June 16, 2021. Session 1 runs from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m, and session 2 runs from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. (all times Central).
Where: Zoom (where else these days, honestly?) Click the “Sign up now” button at the bottom of this page to receive the Zoom login information.
Your hosts: The popular professor Dale Reed — an advocate for #CSforALL, a.k.a. making computer science and tech accessible to all people — and the talented Cecilia Avila, a 2020 graduate of UIC who is dedicated to bringing more women and people from underrepresented groups into the tech world.
Bonus: Participating in Sandbox also gives you a chance to consider becoming a member of Break Through Tech Chicago — a huge asset as you go through your UIC career.
