Insights to Landing a Dream Tech Job

By DeVry University

As the U.S. continues to see technology advancements, there is an inherent need for IT experts. But what does it take to land a great job in the tech industry? Top HR executives shared their insights in a U.S. News & World Report article titled, “What It Really Takes to Snag an Awesome Tech Job:”

Mike Guerchon of Riverbed Technology and Brandy Fulton of Citrix Systems, Inc., connect with prospective technology hires daily.

You don't need to know everything, but you do need to be willing to learn. We’re most interested in candidates who are hungry to learn,’ Guerchon says. ‘I’ve had folks come in who are certainly smart, but maybe didn’t have all the right skills, but still, they had the right attitude. We don’t mind folks that don’t have the exact skills set we’re looking for, as long as they’re still thirsty to learn.’"
