Experience is the single hardest barrier to overcome, especially in IT and support. You can't get it (experience) without it (experience). This is true if you're a career-starter or a career-shifter.

But maybe that's not the only answer any longer. Online communities provide the door to gaining that experience – like an internship you can do in your PJs! In this session, we'll talk about how you can use community participation to gain real-world experience. We'll look into a couple of popular online communities and talk through some examples of how you can network, gain a deeper understanding of real-world challenges, and collaborate on projects and opportunities.
