There's No Time for Imposter Syndrome
Susanne Tedrick
August 17, 2021
Starting a career in technology can be equal parts exciting and terrifying. Doing work on the cutting edge—work that can change lives and the way we do business—attracts thousands to join the tech sector every year. But the constant pace of change can be challenging to keep up with. This demand is compounded by the sinister notion of imposter syndrome.

How CompTIA Membership Can Help Launch a Career in Tech
CompTIA.
April 13, 2021
Before I had a career in the tech industry, I worked in several administrative and operations roles within the financial services industry. I was paid relatively well, had good benefits, worked regular hours, and had good working relationships with my peers and managers. By many accounts, I had what many considered to be a good job. But many times, I felt uninspired, underutilized and frustrated by my work. I kept thinking that rather than a job that just checks a few boxes, “there has to be a career that engages all of me.”
