Do you believe that your lack of college degree(s) is hindering your ability to get jobs and high paying positions?

Hey #BlackTechTwitter in Europe or willing to relocate: my company is looking for an Engineering Manager to come support my teams while I'll leave for my maternity leave ❤️ You will support a one of a kind diverse crowd, while participating in making this world a better place 🌿
We're very bad at sharing our work on making our workplace a diverse and inclusive one, but if data is your jam, in Engineering we are ~50% not identifying as men, ~15/20% identifying as bipoc, 50% women in manager position (yours truly too, who enters in all these categories!)
I don't touch about neurodiversity (hello, still talking about me! 👋🏾) and disability, but I'm truly proud of how my company embraces everyone's differences in a respectful way. We're not perfect, but we want to embody the values we also share in our work field and commitment.

A short Thread about Online Password Security.

More than 80% of the global population have at least two online passwords and more than 80% of that 80% use insecure passwords or simply reuse a single password for multiple websites/apps.

#BlackTechTwitter #100DaysOfHacking #Web3
That’s a problem in this age of modern cybercrime: The theft/exposure of one password could open you up to cascade of account breaches leading to data, identity, and financial losses.

#BlackTechTwitter #100DaysOfHacking #Web3
Talk to a cybersecurity pro about passwords, and they’ll tell you two things: Every password should be unique (You can hardly achieve that) and secure (The more secure it is, the higher the chance you will forget them).

I'm hoping the concept of NFT efficacy is revisited as opposed to the wide array of tangents.

If the concept is new to you, here's an article that encapsulates things more concisely

Why African Americans left the Republican Party

"This decline can be attributed to a general upswing in Lily-White challenges across the South – initiated with President Herbert Hoover’s blessing ."

Now it’s my turn - thank you to the countless Microsoft employees, Most Valuable Professionals, community people and most of all family (first ones I told) and friends that have supported me on giving back! #MVPBuzz lnkd.in/dBmunYJP
1) Biggest lessons I've learned (MVP edition) there is still a 5,000 limit on following people on Twitter until you have that many followers, (see reference here: help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-p…) but no limit to followers on LinkedIn. 1/13
2) besides your profile bio (limited characters) you only can "pin" one tweet which stays at the top of your profile, but you can add others to this 1st tweet & they stay up there as well. Use the + in the lower right to add tweets & they are treated as one or a collection 2/13

Anyone interested in salary comparison & negotiation tips with resources, similar to the below LinkedIn one below?
Ok, let’s go.

Here are things I have negotiated & got increased:

1. Salary

2. Sign on bonus (if they can’t increase salary any further, ask for a sign on bonus, it’s usually easier to get & is a one off payment with your pay check

#BlackTechTwitter #BlackInTech #TechTwitter
3. Relocation budget - if you are relocating, the company should be providing you with funds to do an initial discovery visit (flights & hotel) to see potential areas, then flights, moving costs for when you move, as well as 2-3 months of living expenses to get settled

THREAD: languages to learn in 2022 and what they are used for ✨💗
#BlackTechTwitter #TechTwitter Image
JAVASCRIPT:
JavaScript, the most common language, is used in web, game and mobile-app development. JavaScript is known for it's front-end frameworks and libraries.
Ironically, the language has no affiliation or relation to "Java".
PYTHON:
Python is a very flexible programming language that can be used for data science, analytics, back-end programming and application development. Its simple syntax makes it easy to learn. 🐍

When hiring managers read your resume, they`re looking for more than just an overview of your experience. They`re also looking for growth, specifically:

#BlackTechTwitter #womenintech
👇🏾
1. Career progression

Experience is one thing, but if you’ve stayed in the same role for the past 10 years without moving up, hiring managers are going to want to know why .
No career growth = a possible red flag .

Being promoted or taking on different roles at the same company shows that you’re capable of professional development .
