Hi everyone! I'm looking to emerge into the IT tech field and have recently completed the CompTIA A+ as well as Okta and Google certifications.

You can find a lot of real interview questions for companies on Glassdoor. As for salary, I'd say 120k

It helps to do interview prep beforehand - I usually look at the types of questions and try to identify experiences and stuff I can weave in. The nice thing about remote interviews is that you can cheat a lil haha and look at notes!

Are you looking to get into certain companies?

Yes preferably tech companies, but I'm open to any company with a good work culture.

I’m not from SF and moving across country, so any tips would be appreciated. Do people live right around there or do people commute into the city? I would guess most people have at least one roommate because rent is so high. This is for a tech job, not consulting.
