Background Courtney Christensen, co-founder of Shift/Enter, on 'why Shift/Enter' : “I’ve been on several hiring panels, and I’ve found that most employers are not satisfied with the resumes that they receive. We have a lot of talent in Charlottesville, but it’s hard to find people. I’ve also been a job seeker, and options can feel slim when you’re new to the Charlottesville tech community. I’ve been thinking of ways to get the word out. As I’ve talked to more people new to tech, the refrain that I’ve heard: technical interviews are intimidating, and formatting a tech resume is an arcane art.” For more information visit: https://shiftenter.org/
