Look for Support Engineer roles.

helpful

These roles do exist. The pay is lesser. Perks and benefits are same.

Look for the below roles in decreasing order of chances of getting selected as per your current profile:

1. Support Engineer
2. GD Consultant (Data and AI Domain)
3. Reliability Engineer
4. Cloud Solution Architect

Try for the first two, reach out to people who are serving the same roles (with same technology) on LinkedIn. Buzz them, regularly, ask about insights, take a learning plan and ask for referrals (last step).

See you soon!

Thanks this was very insightful and motivating at the same time 😀 I will surely be joining MS soon.
I wish you more success.

Where I’m at:
- 16 years of sales exp, 0 of which in tech
- Working on DataCamp to learn SQL and Tableau; enjoy the challenge.
- Just started exploring SF Trailhead, specifically an SF Admin trail.

- Basically, I’m lost. I feel like I’m playing checkers while others are playing chess.

If you have experience working through a career change (in your early 30s) as you break into tech, I’d appreciate any tips.
