Do what makes you feel comfortable. Start comms with them based on what you know and build off of that. In the meantime, if you’re leading a project, you (should) have the backing/support if the team to step in as needed. It’s all about clear expectations and accountability. Don’t worry yourself too much!

What reading curriculum does your district use?

Good Morning all,

Since I pivoted into TA (from the Wild West known as Finance) Tech Recruiting has always been the goal. But I’m having a hard time finding a way to get into that space (I do understand there’s a hiring crisis). Nevertheless, does anyone know of tech companies that are hiring? I may be low on the experience side so I’m willing to look at contract/ entry roles as well. Also, any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
