About this Session

Sometimes, a strategy is needed to accomplish a future career change, or simply to get further in your current position. Should you go back to school? Look for a new job? Learn a new set of skills by yourself? Become a freelancer?

One of our mentors could be the outside view you need. They understand the challenges that come with a career change, and are happy to help you come up with a solid strategy on how to reach your goals.

As someone who has helped numerous people land their first job as a developer or level up from junior to mid to senior, I can help guide you to your goals. I started my career on the frontend, transitioned to full stack, then solely a backend engineer. Along the way, I've done everything from building scalable frontends, architecting event driven microservices, and building/maintaining infrastructure with Kubernetes and Helm.
I will give you actionable plans with an ample dose of compassion, humor, and ambition.

I decided to get a mentorship to get an objective vision from a professional perspective on my tech stack and my abilities, and also to navigate me through the process of becoming a software developer.And Donovan is a great match for all of my goals! He's giving me consistent and detailed feedback. He's also helping me to spot my weak spots. I'm really happy to work with him. Highly recommended!

Donovan's breadth and depth of experience with a wide variety of cutting-edge software technologies across the stack along with his delight for sharing ideas make for a great mentor. He himself is always hungry to learn new things and that attitude is contagious. As someone who ventured into software development without a traditional CS background Donovan was an amazing guide in helping not only build upon the skills I'd accumulated but also providing insightful suggestions in providing a path forward. He's quick to respond, generous with his time, and always delighted to answer questions. He's great at breaking down difficult concepts in a way that's conversational and easy to grasp. I'd definitely recommend Donovan as a mentor for anyone just starting out or someone with some experience looking to level up.

I have had the pleasure of being mentored by Donovan for the past several months. I can confidently say he has exponentially increased my growth, confidence and knowledge in the software engineering field. When I first started, I had 0 experience in coding and frankly, was feeling quite lost and overwhelmed. He helped me understand what my priorities should be, how to study, and provided me with tons of valuable resources to expedite my learning. Through sessions that involved reviewing my LinkedIn, resume and interview prep, Donovan was able to help me land my first job and I wouldn't have been able to do it without his guidance. On top of his superb ability to explain difficult concepts, Donovan has always been very supportive and encouraging. He has motivated me to always be in opportunities to learn and hone my ability to think critically. I strongly recommend Donovan as a mentor for anyone who is trying to break into tech or even further themselves in the career.
