Turning doubt into confidence: Women in technology

OTTC_2013 Colleen Alber

Doubt – that sense or feeling of uncertainty you get when thinking about the future. Especially that rush of doubt you feel when taking a leap of faith to change careers.

Doubt in oneself, doubt in one’s financial state or doubt in the ability to live outside one’s comfort zone. It’s a common thing everyone struggles with when making decisions about the future, specifically the right career path.

Turn your doubt into confidence on October 8

While some of these examples are out of our expertise to lend a helping hand, one thing we can help you do is turn doubt into confidence when it comes to choosing a career path.

I know, you are probably thinking, “Wow, did Hyland add ‘therapist’ to its portfolio along with developing award-winning software?”

No, we didn’t. However, working at a leading technology organization, I’m excited to share that we’re hosting our inaugural “Women in Tech” event at Hyland Software’s headquarters on Saturday, October 8, from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Explore your technology career options

The free conference is open to collegiate and career-level women who are interested in learning and exploring degrees or careers in Information Technology (IT). The conference will educate women in Northeast Ohio (or if you happen to be visiting the region) about different career paths in the technology industry and provide an outlet to hear from and network with women about what a day in their roles looks like.

We’ve planned an informative half-day event, in partnership with the Ohio Celebration of Women in Computing (OCWiC), with presentations and panels from software developers, testers and IT specialists to answer questions. Our goal is to help educate attendees and promote female leadership in the technology industry. By hosting this event, we hope to spark interest in technology careers and help women break the glass ceiling by having an open dialogue about different career paths and opportunities.

Again, registration for the event is free. Sign-up today and confirm your seat!

    What a great idea! If this is something you end up doing annually, I’d love to attend next year. It would be well worth the drive for me (I’m an OnBase client in Northeast Indiana). Looking forward to seeing a blog post about how it went!
