Are you feeling burnt out with your current career, and looking for something that you’re passionate about?
If you haven’t already considered entering the technology field, you should.
A recent survey by Glassdoor went searching for the “50 Best Jobs in America” and the results speak volumes.
Four of the top five jobs are within the technology industry and include data scientist, DevOps Engineer, data engineer, and analytics manager.
Even better? All of these positions average a salary over $100,000.
You might think of a lack of technological experience automatically disqualifies you, but that isn’t the case.
A number of today’s data scientists and DevOps Engineers are self-taught, and as technologies and programming languages evolve, on-the-job training is becoming a more significant part of the work day for those involved in technology.
Worried you don’t have the skills or experience to make it as a technology professional?
There are plenty of educational options that can provide you with the knowledge and expertise required.
Does your current job or family commitments prevent you from enrolling in higher education? Websites like Udemy, Skillshare, and Codeacademy all have dozens of affordable courses in a variety of technology topics.
Take one step at a time, and before you know it, you’ll have the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed.
