I had always dreamt about how great it would be to work in the Technology industry, because of all the amazing and innovative initiatives that change the way we live, work, communicate, and have fun. All during high school and University, I was daunted by technical subjects and thought I wasn’t good at them (in hindsight, I was good but definitely lacked confidence). My perception was that one must be very technical to be able to be a part of the IT industry. If I could give my younger self any advice, I would tell her a few things: Firstly, don’t talk yourself out of Maths and Sciences subjects in school because you don’t think you’re good enough. You are good enough, and you shouldn’t be put off that easily. Secondly, to be in the IT industry, you don’t have to have studied IT. There are so many different paths, and many areas for career opportunities in Technology, and as long as you are passionate and willing to learn, great companies like Cisco will invest in your learning.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
