What does it take to get a job in this town!!??
I have 6 years Sales, Marketing, and Operations experience and I can't even garner a return phone call from any tech companies!
My experience is mainly in retail but I do have an informal technical background.
I built my first computer when I was just 12 years old. By the age of 14 I was self taught in Visual Basic and C++. Since the age of 18 I've successfully managed my own investment portfolio consisting of stocks and options - netting double digit yearly returns. I've always considered myself an A+ player.
I’ve been searching for a new opportunity to flex my analytical horsepower, business acumen, and financial bent. I started my first business when I was just 15 years old and my unrelenting desire for success has led to my current role as the Operations Manager for the 13th largest Home Depot in the world ($100 million in annual sales). I am responsible for over $12 million in daily inventory, 350+ associates, and driving top line revenue to get us to $110 million in 2017.
I am looking to make a transition into the tech field. I feel very strongly that my diverse skill set, entrepreneurial spirit, and proven track record of success will make me a valued asset to any team.
I've put in about 50 applications at various size tech companies, and not landed a single interview yet. I know if I could just get my foot in the door, I could prove my worth.
Anyone have any advice on how I can bridge the gap between retail and tech?
