“It has been an amazing experience to be a part of Tech pod as a mentee. During the beginning of this school year, I was extremely confused as to what I wanted to do and felt very unmotivated to look for internships. But once I joined Tech Pod, I was given the opportunity to not only hear about my mentor’s experience but as well as other fellow mentees/mentors that were a part of the program. I began to feel more inspired and I actually landed my internship for this coming summer through a posting that a Tech Pod mentor made. I received a lot of advice and support through the entire process and everyone that I spoke to was always willing to help me out and answer any questions that I had. Without Tech Pod I wouldn't have been able to grow professionally or personally!"
Kristen was confused about what career pathway she wanted to go into during the beginning of the school year. Without Tech Pod's Mentorship program, she would never have known about the internship she secured at IBM through her mentor.

"I met with my amazing mentor Simrah who always pushed me to perform beyond my potential. She helped me build my profile in a way I would've never imagined. Tech Pod has shifted the dynamics of the exclusivity surrounding business roles in the tech industry. Kudos to your team for making this field accessible to all. Keep up with the amazing work and keep impacting students all across the globe!"

"The mentorship program taught me the ins and outs of tech and related industries; key points to focus on within a resume, interview prep, coffee-chats and networking, and, perhaps the most influential to me, self-confidence. My mentor worked with me to make a personalized plan based on my goals and experience and was fully invested in my success. I highly recommend utilizing the advice and programs offered by Tech Pod; after each interview, I was commended on the interview skills that I practiced and implemented within the mentorship program ... Not to mention, a new connection and friendship with my mentor and peers."
Without Tech Pod's Mentorship Program, Amber had no idea how to make a solid resume and how to build professional relationships. After meeting her mentor, she was able to ace her interviews and receive an offer to be a Project Management Intern at a health tech company.
