People are increasingly switching their careers to the IT field, especially programming. 💻
Oftentimes, they cannot answer why they want to learn how to code, except for financial motivations.
Because the question is often asked during job interviews, it is important to have a good answer. What can you do about it?
In my professional experience, the royal road to the IT field is immersing yourself in a disciplined process of research, support, and planning.💡
This includes taking online courses (e.g. Coursera, Udemy, edX), finding a mentor (e.g. Women Go Tech, idialogue), and getting proper career coaching.
An industry-informed coach will help you deal with your fears, collect your thoughts around your values, goals, and motivations, as well as come up with a reasonable career plan.
After that, you will be able to provide solid reasons why you want to join the IT field as well as explain your vision and plan for the future. ☀️
