This month for our Women in Technology, we are spotlighting Megan, one of our Client Relations Administrators! Read about her story and how she started in technology.

Tell us your story on how you got into technology.

Tech has always been on the periphery of my previous jobs, from teaching people how to use the computer at my first job at a library to typesetting documents at a print shop. 

Did you always know that working in technology was what you wanted to do?

No, I am more of a hands-on creative type that just kept finding myself working with technology in some capacity or another.

How long have you been with Dataprise?

2 years.

Can you share a little bit about what it is that you do and what a typical day for you is like?

A lot of support work. Data pulls for internal resources, document/presentation creation and editing, working with clients. There is no typical day!

What advice would you give to women considering a career in the tech industry? What do you wish you had known?

Be confident in your worth (it’s more than you know!). Take the chance and work with what you know; you’ll be surprised where it can take you. Finding out that the skills I’ve acquired outside of the tech industry were what was needed of me was a surprise!

Why do you think it’s important for more women to join the tech industry? How can the broader community support women in tech?

I think that more diversity in tech will contribute to more creative solutions in the industry. Support will come from STEM outreach to students and continuing to address unconscious bias in the workplace.

What do you think is the best part of being a woman in the tech industry?

The community with other women in the company and the knowledge that I can create a strong network within the industry.

What is it that you enjoy most about your current job at Dataprise?

That I truly feel like I am an integral part of the workflow. Even when it is something as simple as proofreading or gathering data, I know my unique understanding of a situation is not underestimated.

What is the best professional advice you’ve ever received?

Ignore your imposter syndrome. You belong where you are for your skills, and more technical skills can always be learned!

Where do you see yourself going from here?

I see myself continuing to deepen my understanding of our clients’ unique needs and challenges. I envision continuing collaboration with internal teams and expanding my technical knowledge.
