Carol was born and raised in Brazil. She has a BA in Business and MBA Finance. She had spent her professional career working as a business consultant there. In 2015, she decided to make Aliyah and try a new life in Israel.
After two years of experience working for Netafim (an Israeli manufacturer of irrigation equipment, pioneer in drip irrigation technology, considered as 'low-tech'), she still found it difficult to land her second meaningful job in Israel with no technical background.
In 2018, she initiated her path into the digital world to stand out in the crowd. She started blogging in the 'The Times of Israel', attended networking events and kept reskilling herself.
This is how she landed her current position at Checkmarx - she not only built, but also nurtured relationships.
She also was interviewed and featured in Israel's leading women's magazine, La-Isha (The Woman, in Hebrew), as one of five examples of women who had no coding experience nor any background in the high-tech scene in Israel, but they did it anyway.
In this blog, she shares her knowledge and practical tools to help all the other job seekers.
