Who's Actually  Gone Through This?

October 2017 Class

John, Angie, Jason, Mia, and Xuan were part of the inaugural TechRec Academy class. 

Jason Liu

Past: Agency Recruiter

Now: Cruise Automation

"In-house recruitment definitely has changed my life for the better. I have more impact in terms of understanding the business objectives and seeing my hires make a noticeable difference in their respective teams. Better compensation and overall work-life balance. Freedom to manage my own schedule and workflow. Ability to learn more about autonomous vehicles, technical domain areas I recruit for within infrastructure such as Kubernetes, Containers, and GPUs by consulting with my hiring managers and engineering partners."

John Ferneborg

Past: Executive Recruiter

Now: X, The Moonshot Factory

"Thanks to the TechRec program I was able to quickly work my way to success and develop my learning as a technical recruiter. Throughout my career, I can now say that I specialize in everything from C-Suite executive hires to technical frontend, backend, and SDK development in mobile advertising, to computational agronomy and biology, machine learning, and quantum physics in an incubator environment. It’s been a wild ride. Thank you, TechRec!"

Angie Neale

Past: Agency Recruiter

Now: SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

"Today I am a technical recruiter with a world-renowned organization known for some of the top engineers working on state of the art technology. I am also making almost twice the salary I made prior to joining TechRec academy, recruiting and sourcing for engineers and partnering with technical leaders... I am thankful to Aaron and Cody for an amazing journey they allowed me to be a part of their first TechRec Academy group of students and I am thankful for the friendships and professional connections I developed as a result." 

The October 2017 class received offers and interviews from companies like Facebook, Google, Cruise Automation, Instacart, Zillow, Vungle, Chariot, Shift Technologies, and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. 

Where do they work today?

"TRA requires a lot of studying and the dedication will open lots of doors. Aaron is very knowledgeable through his personal experience in technical recruiting and is passionate about teaching! He is very easy to work with and is open to new ideas. I learned a lot about recruiting in tech, measuring metrics, and how to better communicate to candidates. I highly recommend TRA to anyone who is interested in tech recruiting because it was a very positive experience and the possibilities are endless."
