Want a Tech Job but Don't Know Where to Start?

Tell me if this sounds familiar:

  • You've always been passionate about tech - the sexiest gadgets, the latest apps
  • You know that tech is the future - from schools to taxis to thermostats, everything's going digital
  • And you'd love to work for a cool tech company - from Google to Snapchat to Tesla
Want a Tech Job but Don't Know Where to Start?

So Why Are You Still Sitting on the Sidelines?

I'll tell you why. Because I've been there - for the first 10 years of my career, in fact.

And if you're anything like me, you've:

  • Spent a lot of time wishing you worked in tech
  • Read a lot of blogs about working in tech
  • Maybe even dabbled with an online coding course
So Why Are You Still Sitting on the Sidelines?

But After All That Time, What Do You Have to Show for It?

Nada.

Why?

Because reading and wishing don't actually get you any closer to a cool tech job.

Because coding, while lucrative, is both really hard to learn and really boring for most people.

And because the idea of launching a whole new career in a whole new space is really, freaking overwhelming.
But After All That Time, What Do You Have to Show for It?

But What If I Told You There Was a Better Way?

A way that took your hand and walked you step-by-step through everything you need to do to get started and find your place in the crazy world of tech.

The way that I used to go from teaching kindergarten to identifying perfect-fit marketing roles at Apple, LinkedIn, and VC-funded startups.

And the way that's helped hundreds of people go from sitting on the sidelines to careers at Google, Amazon, and Zendesk - all without learning to code.
But What If I Told You There Was a Better Way?

That's the Find Your Fit Way

Because Find Your Fit wasn't designed to be a traditional class. Instead, it was crafted to be a step-by-step path to finding the perfect tech role for you.

It's not a blog or a boring MOOC where you sit back and listen passively while never getting any closer to your goal. Instead, it's a 100% action-based approach to breaking into tech.
That's the <i>Find Your Fit</i> Way

Offers Earned via Find Your Fit

Here's How It Works

  • 1) Understand Tech Jobs

    We'll start with a crash course on the Top 10 tech jobs that are open to anyone - even if you don't code. These are jobs that get hired for thousands of times a year but that no one ever tells you about - roles like PM, PMM, CorpDev, BizDev, BizOps. And I'll walk you through exactly what they do all day and how to see if you'd be a good fit.

  • 2) Find the Perfect Role

    You'll rate each of these jobs in your interactive workbook, generating a personalized recommendation of the right role for you. And then you'll vet these recommendations with experts in the space, building a network of tech supporters in the process.

  • 3) Position Yourself to Win

    I'll give you a peek inside the minds of tech recruiters - who they look for and how they hire. And based on that, I'll show you how to take any experience you've had before - no matter how different from tech - and turn it into total recruiter bait. Including the exact keywords recruiters look for and examples of real resume bullets.

Here's Why It Works

As a former teacher, I despise boring lectures. That's why I built this course to be one that I'd actually want to take.

And that way you can actually break into tech - not just dream about it.

  • I've broken everything down into 3-minute videos so you never get bored if you're as ADD as I am... :)

  • I'll show you all the free tools I use to find anyone's email address and stay in touch automatically (including how to never pay LinkedIn a dime!)

  • And you'll never get stuck because I give you step-by-step checklists from start to finish

Here's the Proof

    I followed some of Jeremy's tips, thinking that there will be no difference in the lack of responses I experienced when I used to reach out to individuals at several companies. It was such a relief to see such a dramatic difference in response rates by just tweeking a few steps when reaching out to company representatives. Because of Break Into Tech, I am now actively speaking with companies like Spotify, FaceBook, and Slack.

    Prior to taking the "Land Your First Tech Job" course I was working HOURS a day trying to become proficient enough of a developer in order to one day break into tech. I enjoy coding more than most (I'm sure); but as my only viable strategy for breaking into tech, my dreams seemed a long way off. Then I discovered Break Into Tech! In Land your First Tech Job, Jeremy showed me that there really could be an actual process for getting a job in tech. He made the process SO simple, practical and straight-ahead I started to wonder if I actually needed to become a developer to break into tech. If my theory was correct, my timeline would certainly decrease if anything. For that reason It seemed worth looking into so I found myself in his "Find Your Fit" Course. There I was able to learn the full scope of where I could immediately add value most to a tech company utilizing my already existing skill-sets. For the past 6 months (at least), my prior strategy for getting a job in tech consisted of daily applying at any and all places where I might possibly be able to add value with what little skill I had and then thought I needed to have. These efforts - no matter how consistent - seemed to produce minimal to no results. However, within two weeks of completing and putting Jeremy's plan from both courses into action, I had already made it to the final interview round at two completely different companies for a position in Customer Success. Still just within two weeks, I received an official job offer and I am happy to report I have accepted! There's so much more to say but for the sake of time, I just want to say thank you to Jeremy for making this course. Jeremy just made a distant dream possible for me, and I can't thank him enough for that and neither will I soon forget it. I highly recommend this course for anyone who thinks they need to become a developer to break into tech, I'm living proof that it's not true and I can't recommend enough that you give Jeremy a chance to show you how it's possible.

    Jeremy's course was very helpful and insightful on how to better market yourself & get into tech! I especially appreciated Jeremy going out of his way to provide me with a transcript of the course as I am Deaf (I will make sure I refer all of my Deaf and Hard of Hearing buddies to this course!) as several elements relied on audio. I could not have thought of a better "training" package that included everything one needed to get ahead of the job search process particularly in the tech field: Excel workbooks, LinkedIn tips, throught-provoking questions, and many more! Jeremy truly did his "homework" and streamlined the whole exploration and application process which could have took me many months or perhaps years into a matter of several hours. Glad to have took the "red pill" to see what it all is and could be!

    Find Your Fit is the most important course I took in my Business School. It lays out a structure, helps avoid rabbit holes and most importantly gives you focus, saving the most precious resource in B-school: Time. Focus is key to successful recruiting. Think about it: The more time your peers spend shaping themselves for a particular job and the more time you spend figuring out what you want to do with your MBA the knowledge gap widens. Unlike any other assessment course, Find Your Fit follows a data driven and market first approach helping you use a combination of insights from stats and the collective knowledge of your network to zero in on your true interest. Let’s take a look at an MBA’s most used metric: ROI. If you do the math, a single class in most B- Schools costs around $350. For a fraction of that cost, you get an entire course that will be critical to help land your dream job. The decision is a no brainer.

    I was very impressed with this. It gives an extremely comprehensive yet streamlined overview of the tech world and the possible roles once could fill. It very quickly allowed me to eliminate many options that I had heard of before and would have likely fruitlessly pursued if it hadn't been for this course. It also gave me the chance to identify the areas I'm most likely to be able to transition into at first. The interactivity and action steps throughout the program were also great; it allowed me to reconnect with many old friends and colleagues, and I've developed a small network of people who I will be turning to for advice and possibly connections in the future. It even led to recruiters from a company I'm interested in add me on LinkedIn! Overall, I'm very impressed with this course (my only critique would be to make the volume louder in the narration, but that's such a minor issue that it's barely worth mentioning), and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in breaking into tech.

    WOW, what a really great course to gain insight on the tech industry, its roles, my fit, and very practical steps to gaining confidence in the tech job search. I really enjoyed this course, I appreciate how it's broken up into very small steps, with call-to-actions, and email reminders to continue learning. It is evident that these roles have been thoroughly researched, making it so much easier to find out what your role in the tech field is. I went through this and it's so great, I've been able to make connections at different tech companies following the advice. I've been able to revamp my LinkedIn and I feel much more confident about my ability to transition into the tech industry. Thank you so much for this great course!

    Being a second year MBA on my internship, I knew I had to get to make a decision on the right role in the tech industry really fast. Jeremy's course helped me structure my thoughts and get me to experiment with the idea of pitching myself to a startup to get some practical experience. Following the course's advice, I was able to work with a startup this summer which helped me test my interest in a particular role on a day to day basis, ultimately leading me to make decisions on the basis of that. This course is a must for everyone who is still figuring out a way to get to know about what each of the roles mean and how to evaluate your interest in each one to find the right fit.

As a former kindergarten teacher who landed roles at Apple and LinkedIn, Jeremy knows that the tech world is surprisingly open to all kinds of talent.

Questions?

  • What does this course cover?

    I take you all the way from knowing absolutely nothing about tech jobs to identifying the perfect role for you - and demonstrating that fit in a rockstar resume or LinkedIn profile. This is absolutely the most important part of the whole tech job search since if you apply for the wrong kind of job, not even the best cover letter or interview technique can save you. But if you already know exactly where you belong, you may want to skip ahead to Land Your First Tech Job.

  • How do I know I'm going to get results?

    Because this is the exact same approach I used to land offers at Apple, Amazon, LinkedIn, Microsoft, and VC-backed startups. And it's the exact same approach I've taught hundreds of others, leading to offers from the biggest tech firms (Google, Dell) and the hottest startups (BetterWorks, Zendesk). But if you're not getting results within 30 days, I will gladly refund your full tuition because I'm 100% committed to seeing you actually succeed - not just dream about it.

  • When does this course start?

    The course is 100% on-demand so it starts as soon as you're ready. And while it will take about 20 hours to complete all the videos and exercises, you can do them at your own pace.

  • How long do I have access to the course?

    Great jobs come and go. So you'll have complete, lifetime access on your computer, tablet, or phone.

  • What kind of additional coaching do you offer?

    If you want personalized feedback on how you're positioning yourself for a role, I'm happy to offer a complete resume review - analysis of every bullet and recommendations based on what recruiters actually look for.

    In addition, we can also do a 30-minute video conference where we talk through your strategy and get you ready to win interviews and earn offers!

    Having served as the University of Michigan's tech career coach and earned 100% satisfaction over 500+ coaching sessions, you can be confident you'll be in good hands.

  • I've got another question!

    I built this course with one overarching goal: To help others succeed.

    So please don't hesitate to send any questions my way: jeremy @ breakinto.tech
