Hi there! 👋 I'm an Engineering Manager at Meta / Facebook with over 12 years of experience both as a Tech Lead and Engineering Manager at big tech companies as well as startups. For me, seeing others succeed and grow is the ultimate satisfaction. I have always believed that when people are happy in their day to days, success and growth follows it along. With this in mind, I've made it my mission to help others around me stay happy and achieve their goals.

Areas of Expertise:

As a mentor, I specialize in two areas: career growth within current jobs, and interview preparation. I have supported over 30 engineers both formally and informally, helping them advance in their careers. And I have over 200 interviews under my belt as an interviewer.

What I Can Help With:

When it comes to career growth, I know firsthand how challenging it can be to feel stuck and uncertain about how to advance. That's why I am passionate about helping others navigate their career paths. I bring organization and milestones to the table, breaking down the steps necessary to achieve your goals. I also help with interview preparation, drawing from my extensive interviewing experience both as an interviewer and an interviewee to help others understand what to expect and how to succeed.

What to Expect From Me:

My goal as a mentor is to bring clarity to the process. Starting from the first session, I listen to my mentees' goals and work with them to map out a plan to achieve them. I am dedicated to helping others succeed, and I expect the same level of commitment from my mentees. I encourage them to bring an agenda and questions to each session, and to follow through on the milestones we set together. I use a shared tracker to keep track of our conversations and plans, providing clarity and accountability along the way.

Unique Experiences:

Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to be interviewed by over 20 companies and have gone through more than 100 interviews. Many of these interviews have resulted in job offers. This unique experience has given me a wealth of knowledge when it comes to understanding what interviewers are looking for and how to succeed in the process.

I'm looking forward to working with you to achieve your career goals!

At the 6-month milestone of my software engineering mentorship with Orcun, I'm excited to share my experiences. Orcun's lightning-fast responses to chat queries have been a game-changer. The exercises provided have been incredibly valuable, and every session has added significant depth to my skill set. Thanks to Orcun's guidance, I've acquired a robust set of problem-solving tools, simplifying even the most complex issues. Orcun's explanations and problem-solving methods have shattered my previous, overly complicated approach. I've witnessed substantial growth in my skills, preparing me for my ultimate goal of entering a leading tech company. Notably, my progress, though at a medium level, has attracted the interest of several recruiters. I'm eager to continue on this journey towards "big tech" under Orcun's mentorship. His ability to decode even the most "Martian" explanations has made this journey incredibly comfortable and fruitful. As I approach the 6-month mark, I'm excited about the future growth and accomplishments that Orcun's mentorship will undoubtedly bring. Thank you, Orcun, for your exceptional guidance!
