GGC Office Hours at Venture Cafe Warsaw

Agata Piekut by Agata

Join us during our monthly office hours to talk about your career in IT!

Would you like to change your career path? Have you been thinking about going into IT? Or maybe you’ve already worked in an IT role for some time and you’d like to take the next step?

Have you been reading articles, listening to podcasts and watching vlogs, however, you still don’t know what you should do to make this next step? At this point, you probably already know that the promise of a new career (especially in programming) in three months is usually not an option. So how do you invest your time well? That’s why we’ve started office hours in a new collaboration with Venture Cafe Warsaw, an international community of innovators.

Let’s meet and debunk myths about a career in IT together!

How does it work?

  • When: every last Thursday of the month during Venture Cafe Warsaw Thursday Gathering.
  • During each event, we have 2-3 30-minutes time slots which you can book for a meeting with us.
  • Please write in the form the main topic you’d like to talk about (e.g. starting a career in UX) – this will help us prepare a personalized plan for you.
  • You can ask us about anything about a career in IT – not only software development!
  • Most important: don’t be scared to book your slot, you’re always welcome with all of your questions.

What if you didn’t manage to book your slot this time? Come anyway! We’re usually staying till the end of the event and we’ll be happy to talk to you. However, please note that we might not be able to offer you a full-time consultation slot as to those who’ve signed up for a meeting.

Why join Venture Cafe Warsaw Thursday Gatherings?

We organize our office hours in collaboration with them for a reason! Networking is one of the most important elements of building a career – it helps you to gradually build trust for when a new opportunity opens. While you’re working on your portfolio, and gain new certificates, it’s a big mistake to avoid industry events until you start your first job or reach your dream role.

As Venture Cafe’s mission is to connect innovators to make things happen, it’s one of the best ways to connect with professionals working in a variety of roles in technology and other innovative sectors. This means that you’ll be able to meet there with:

  • serial entrepreneurs with successful companies,
  • investors looking for their next big bet,
  • mentors seeking to share their expertise,
  • curious doers in search of knowledge or resources,
  • youth with fresh perspectives,
  • people with just an idea,
  • experts and talents from innovation-adjacent fields,
  • seasoned professionals

Join us:
You can book your slot during February 2020 office hours directly here: Office Hours February.
