BREAKING INTO TECH EVENT SERIES

Breaking Into Tech has easily become one of sf.citi’s most popular events. Each year, we connect current and aspiring tech workers through a series of speed networking sessions. Breaking Into Tech gives job seekers the unique opportunity to talk to professionals at San Francisco’s top tech companies and demystify preconceptions about what it takes to work in tech.
