You have to pass PD1 and you have to use programmatic concepts in Sharing & Visibility and the System Architect certs, as well as the boards. You don't have to be PD2-level, but many are. It's really an unfortunate name, because most understand a "technical architect" to be a leader of programmatic development; probably should be "Certified Enterprise Architect".

Doable sure. But if you get into the thick of something where it needs to be fixed ASAP, hope you have support

It's doable but you will have to learn at least the basics, such as dev 1 cert level. Also in review board if your judge decides to narrow down at code level, then things can get tough

Yes, but you need to focus on functional and technical aspects, security arch on a platform. Do a self assessment on major areas for CTA and once you know gaps, work towards it.

One thing I keep having to remind myself is that career mobility is higher than ever. Have gotten several offers at this point from companies that I "kind of like", and have been holding out for the dream companies. But I should probably just take a solid offer elsewhere. It would give me a foundation to build up skills and experience, and continuously applying for jobs while having a solid job is probably a lot less stressful than needing the perfect job before I graduate my MS degree in 2 mo.

For those who have successfully made a career pivot into a new field, is it recommended to apply for the equivalent title in the new field (i.e. Senior to Senior) or is it more effective to apply for a title that is a step back from your current role (i.e. Senior to Junior)? I’ve heard arguments supporting either strategy but am interested in hearing about the personal successes that people have had.

I’m really wanting to just quit my summer internship. I got placed in a location in the north east which I didn’t want to be in the first place. The people are rude here and I’m losing money because my salary is so low. I’ve already accepted a full time job offer with a different company so it’s like I don’t even need this internship at all. I know it’s heavily discouraged to leave in the middle of the summer, but are there any options that I could potentially take?
