  • What to expect in a tech start-up culture?

  • Options beyond marketing – what jobs are in-demand?

She’s passionate about helping people find a career they love, and pulls from her experience as a technical recruiter to advise students at The Iron Yard on how to do just that. A member of Women & Hi Tech, Emily’s excited to be in a city that supports (and encourages) women with careers in tech. She’s always happy to chat about the Indy tech scene, tips for finding a new job or career, or the Colts (even this year).

During her time there, Sara also joined Visit Indy as a freelance writer, ran her own food blog and wrote recipe columns for The Indianapolis Star.
