From Breaking In to Kicking Ass 

Have you ever wanted a cheat sheet for your career? Or a how-to guide on how to get your first job in tech?

Engineering Leader Alex Karp takes a look at what it takes to break into tech and really succeed. Running Start is a combination of Alex’s experiences and observations, both as an engineer and as a manager at companies like Microsoft, Wayfair, and Twitter. The result is this book, filled with everything that he wishes he had known when he started out in his career.

With inclusivity and accessibility in mind, Alex wrote Running Start so that anyone and everyone can find a job that they love and really shine. Whether it’s your first job or your 50th, there’s something in this book for everyone. You bring the coding skills; Alex will bring everything else.

Foreword written by Pariss Chandler.
