Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts.

For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WatchGuard Technologies (Seattle, WA) in May 2018


    Online Assessment, Phone Screen, and In-person or remote interview.

    Moderate difficulty questions in a very laid-back atmosphere, but you'd still need to dress up to impress. Prepare to troubleshoot networking scenarios and describe each step clearly.
