What is YOE and why a sudden transition?

30 YO, w/ 9 YOE. I initially started a career in public service, but with a growing family came the need to find the best way support them. Last August, I began to do some back planning to think about where I want to end up, the ROI of certain career paths, and what best aligned my actual interests with my current needs.

After deciding on a path to take, I’ve secured my first cloud certification, started a portfolio website to host planned personal projects and open source projects I plan on contributing to, and secured placement in a structured learning environment to reinforce foundational things I’ve learned on my own.

Which languages and frameworks do you know?

FrontEnd: HTML5, CSS, JavaScript
FE Frameworks: Angular, React
Backend: Python, JavaScript, C#
BE Frameworks: Flask, Express.Js, .Net
DB: SQL, My SQL

Collaboration Tools: Atlassian (Jira and Confluence), Miro

With the breadth of projects I’ve been a part of, I’ve become a bit conversational in these tools and languages, however I’m currently reworking my GitHub profile and portfolio site to better track and document my work.

I just accepted my SWE Offer!

Team just applied for a TS Clearance (defense agency). Trying to assess if it makes sense to wait till the clearance comes through (6 months to a year?) before I job hop. I'm hoping to get some clarity on the following:
1. Can my company withdraw or cancel my clearance if I leave right after I secure a TS?
2. In terms of compensation, how much value (% compensation) does a TS clearance have in the DC area? Places I'm considering: AWS, Azure, GCP, Data bricks, Appian etc.
Any advice, thanks!

Anyone else been feeling down lately and starting to question where they are in their career. I’ve seen numbers of people I’ve worked with over the years leave my company. Because of this, I’ve started to question my own abilities. It feels like my career is at a stand still. Any advice?

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.

Hi Salesforcers, i have a friend of mine who wants to switch careers from banking to tech.

If so what kind of training can be taken and how to land a job after?

Hired as Product Marketer. Now manager wants me to “own all strategic partners.” If you were asked to take over partner marketing activities, what pros and cons would you see to having those responsibilities?

I haven’t worked with partners much, and it has never been an interest. However, maybe the company thinks partnerships will be a big source of revenue (I am trying to find out from a C-level).

My manager thinks partner marketing won’t take more than 25% of my time. Not sure I believe it.
