Currently in a systems engineering position in the aerospace field. Getting my masters in computer science and I want to become a software engineer. I have no experience in software engineering. What types of jobs should I look for? Junior level? Internships?

Couple of factors (1) how many years professional, “real world” experience (2) quality of masters program (3) what type of software engineering do want to do - (business systems, mobile, web etc)

FYI I was a systems engineer in aerospace, and I made the transition into tech via doing System Safety engineering for self-driving cars. My comp is triple what it was in aero, not even including equity. I had 3 yeo as an aero engineer before making the move and now have another 2 working in self driving. Only you know what is right for you but I would look into systems engineering positions at the major self-driving companies, I miss aerospace sometimes but I really enjoy working on these systems!

Hi fishies 🐠 I’m an Art Director that’s trying to transition over to UX Design. I have experience building websites and some previous freelance work doing some UI/UX. What’s the best route to transition over and would I need to apply for entry level roles? Does an AD role with a UI/UX focus even exist? I enjoy the thinking of UX design and am comfortable designing interfaces but I’m mostly unsure of the process of working with an UX team. Would love to hear your thoughts!

What’s the right balance between the resources/client base of a larger firm and the autonomy/pay of a smaller firm? How small is too small?
