The Impact

“I've made friendships with genuine, like-minded, hardworking, and passionate people across the world, and I no longer felt alone in my journey of growth on LinkedIn. Posting content regularly has also boosted my visibility, and having a personal brand on LinkedIn has started to open up opportunities!”

“There was a point in my recruitment journey when I reached a stagnant state of discouragement, and it wasn't until I joined Tech Pod as a Fellow in their Spring '21 cohort that I was able to indulge in the necessary things that eventually got me to where I am today. I was interested in pursuing a non technical role in the tech industry, and throughout this amazing Fellowship experience, Tech Pod provided me with the necessary resources and knowledge on doing just that. I got the amazing opportunity to network with business professionals and, of course, connect with the other like minded Fellows who were traversing through similar issues in their professional career. The content creation side of the program was especially enlightening, as posting on LinkedIn was not only therapeutic, but it also helped me to understand myself better. Tech Pod’s Fellowship program was a huge stepping stone for me and definitely a nudge in the right direction, and this is just the beginning!”

“Being part of the Tech Pod fellowship program has been amazing! I got to meet other fellows, get to know the Tech Pod team, and start creating LinkedIn content. I knew posting on LinkedIn was important, but I never knew how to start. I learned what to post during the program and had support from other fellows and the program managers! The Tech Pod community has benefited me because the events are really informational and diverse and I get to learn from professionals about their fields. Thank you to the Tech Pod team and the fellowship program managers for giving me the opportunity to be a fellow and learn the ropes of LinkedIn!”

"Tech Pod's fellowship community is warm, hardworking, and forward thinking. During my time as a fellow, I gained hands-on experience in content creation under the guidance of Gallant and Serena. Likewise, I gained new perspectives from interacting with our cohort, who came from diverse backgrounds and majors. I would highly recommend the Tech Pod fellowship program to anyone looking to create lasting connections and impact within the LinkedIn community. You will learn a lot."
