Hi! I have been in sales for 4 years now and I am currently leveraging my company’s benefits to finish my degree next year. I want to transition into software dev, but my concern is that no one will hire me because I lack the experience. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You should try to do some projects on the side to have examples of software dev work. Try looking at Code for America or Hackathons where you can use your new skills.

There’s a lottt of companies willing to hire new grads, you just have to grind to find them. Also as D1 said, projects are really important so you can showcase your skills. Network like crazy on LinkedIn if you’re not already. Join tech Slack channels, pretty much all of them have great leads on their job boards. Some large corps have internship/apprenticeship programs for new grads as well. I’ve even seen smaller companies have those types of programs too.
