As it turns out, landing a job has much less to do with your resume than it feels like it should. Instead, it’s almost entirely grounded in your ability to connect with a stranger, and to give them the confidence that you can handle yourself and solve problems, as STEM is largely about just that, the ability to think through and solve problems in a system, the qualifications you have are just proof that you know what to consider.

The Renaissance Faire is a very special time of year. Tony Estes, a vendor at the Tech Ren Faire,  says, “People get to be themselves or get to be someone else for the day, it’s what I like about Comic-Con too.” After seeing the scale of the 14th Annual Santa Fe Renaissance Faire in Santa Fe, it’s apparent that this is exactly the case. Of the three thousand attendees, at least half of those present came as pirates, knights, and faeries. Tech’s Ren Faire, was of course, small by comparison. However, it was still packed dense with humans, elves, and potential.
