eBook Helps Young Women Imagine Possibilities with a Career in Technology
GERMANTOWN, MD (PRWEB) JULY 22, 2014 – Planet Technologies, an award-winning Microsoft partner, is pleased to announce availability of the eBook 12 Amazing Tech Jobs and the Women Who Rock Them: Imagine What You Can Do, and the inclusion of one of the company’s female technology professionals. The free eBook, published by Microsoft, provides an inside view of the work life of women in the tech industry today.
A fascinating inside look at business, the eBook helps readers imagine what it is like to work in technology. Each woman profiled in the eBook describes what she does, how she came to be in her role and how her job impacts her life. Most of the women featured did not intend to work in technology but followed individual paths to find a job they love.
“I never imagined…”
Readers will learn about Tasha Scott, SharePoint Consultant, Planet Technologies, whose job includes assisting customers with leveraging SharePoint to create process efficiencies and remove barriers to effective collaboration and achieving business goals.
“I’m honored to have been recommended and selected to participate in 12 Amazing Tech Jobs and the Women Who Rock Them. I’ve had times in my career where I thought I had reached the limit of my potential-that I was a bit out of my league in choosing a tech job. However, I have found a great support base in the SharePoint family and hope to offer that same encouragement to anyone feeling interested in but hesitant about pursuing a technology-focused role — to let them know that they can do it!” says Scott.
“Technology can have a profound impact on changing lives, and this eBook offers insight into how technology has impacted the lives of 12 women across the technology industry,” said Jenni Flinders, vice president of the U.S. Partner Group at Microsoft. “Each woman has a unique story of how the tech industry may not have been her first choice but certainly became the place for her career.”
A resource for teachers, guidance counselors and parents
Through the profiles and industry overview pages, “12 Amazing Tech Jobs and the Women Who Rock Them” cuts through the jargon to explain the workings of the technology industry. Though aimed at young women, the 36-page eBook is as relevant for boys as it is for girls-and even for adults who have always been curious about technology companies. Glossaries throughout the text help young people understand common business terms and acronyms.
“We are proud of Tasha for being chosen to be part of Microsoft’s e-book and hope that her enthusiasm about her tech career and experience at Planet will inspire other young women to follow her path into the technology industry,” says Scott Tucker, CEO, Planet Technologies.
