From Teaching to Tech and Thriving Post-Layoff with Maideli Garcia was originally published on The First Gen Coach.

In this episode, I chat with Maideli Garcia, a financial educator and former teacher who transitioned to the tech sector by leveraging her transferable skills. Maideli shares how she knew it was time to transition careers, the steps she took to get there, the setbacks that she faced along the way, and how she took care of her mental health in her job search journey. We also discussed the importance of talking about personal finance and careers together, since they are so intertwined and influence each other in multiple ways.

About today’s guest:
