Erika Hairston has made a lot of professional connections in her young career. Now she’s created an app to help others network too.
Hairston is the founder and designer of Zimela, an app that encourages underrepresented groups to enter tech by connecting women—particularly black women—with mentors, career placement opportunities, and internships.
I wish recruiters stopped asking "What is your expected salary" My response "I gauge how serious a comp is about hiring me based on what they provide. I look forward to hearing what they are offering. You can share your range + I'll let you know if I'd continue this conversation"
The worst outcome of creating and sharing your work is that nobody cares but if someone does then you've succeeded. This imo, is the biggest reason to just go ahead, the downside is likely already there (nobody cares). You have nothing to lose.
