Alumni Office Hour: Leaning in, making connections and breaking into tech with a non-tech degree with Insiya Cuttleriwala (BES '18, ENBUS)

When an 8-month coop job at Facebook caught her eye, Insiya Cuttleriwala (BES '18, ENBUS) didn’t feel qualified. But having recently learned in Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In that most females only apply for jobs they are 100% qualified for, she decided to throw her hat into the ring filled with engineering students, and she landed the job. Turning a co-op placement into a full-time job, however, took time, patience and maintaining connections.

After Facebook, Insiya went on to gain more marketing experience at other companies but maintained her network with former Facebook colleagues. That commitment eventually led to her being recruited into her current role where she helps companies optimize their marketing dollars through Facebook's products.

Join Insiya’s Alumni Office Hour to learn about leveraging volunteer experiences, building strong connections, going for jobs you don’t feel qualified for and breaking into tech – even with a non-tech degree.
