People with Awesome Jobs: The Dream Tech Jobs You Didn't Know Existed and the People Who Do Them (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Having an awesome job in tech probably doesn't mean what you think it means. Did you know that the VP of Alexa has an Anthropology degree? Or that there's a big skills demand in the tech industry for language structure specialists? Can you imagine Mark Zuckerburg's career adviser advising him to be CEO of the Facebook that didn't yet exist? People with Awesome Jobs shines a light on the incredibly cool jobs that exist in tech, the diverse range of interesting people who do them, and the unexpected ways they got there.

In this fascinating and inspirational read, journalist and self-proclaimed supergeek Holly Brockwell shows you that you don't have to be 'techy' to have an awesome job in tech. Featuring interviews and inspirational case studies, as well as practical tools, tips and advice, People with Awesome Jobs shows you what's possible now, and what might be possible in the future - and helps you take control of your career.
