Go for it and be open minded to new opportunities. Because if I hadn’t talked to Graham and Adam Gurley (Training Support Specialist) at the ServiceTrade Days company meeting in July, I wouldn’t have considered this position.
I told Graham and Adam about my major and how I just graduated, and they talked to me about what they do and asked me questions about what kind of things I enjoyed doing. I told them I really liked problem solving, and they made the connection for me that I might be a good fit for the DevOps Specialist role.
After ServiceTrade Days, I started shadowing Graham and worked on a few projects. From there it kind of just snowballed. I did more and more projects and then I accepted an offer to join the Engineering team.
So be open to talking to people about what you’re interested in and what you want to do. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to move to Engineering.
