SUMMARY

We are in the midst of a unique moment in the tech industry where job opportunities are not as plentiful and there is a large shift in focus on skillsets - by way of upskilling to embrace change via up-and-coming technology (like AI), looking at internal mobility plays and reskilling our existing talent, and incorporating upskilling into our products. This is a moment for leaders to think outside the box as we are challenged to have more agility with ruthless prioritization to keep our teams and products on top of technological advances. Join Erica Lockheimer, VP of Engineering at LinkedIn, and Chris Pruett, Co-Founder & CTO at Jam, as they compare and contrast their experience with this change in real-time from both perspectives in early-stage startups and big tech.
