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.

It's a pleasure to work with him! Speedy and informational answers, continuously checking on you, trying to make you stay on the right track. Really helped me to navigate my journey as an aspiring developer, gave the recommendation on what should I do next, also always offered multiple paths depending on my specific interests and goals. If you looking for someone to help you break into tech or improve your career I would highly recommend working with Donovan!

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.

Donovan was a great mentor. He helped me spruce up my resume and linked in profile, prepare for interviews and eventually land a job. He was a great resource to have as I got comfortable in my new position. I highly recommend Donovan as a mentor for anyone in tech whether you have a few years of experience or are just starting out.
