I have 5 YOE of in-house full-cycle recruiting in the PR/marketing space at $120k. Recently moved to SF but am working remotely for my firm based in NYC. Overall I'm happy but I'm starting to feel like I don't want to work fully remote forever and I am limiting future career options (and income) in the Bay since I have no tech exp. Has anybody made a switch to tech recruiting midway in their career? Or are there any other non-tech recruiters in the Bay Area who can give advice on career growth?

I'm just feeling a little lost and need some reassurance that I'm not holding myself back.

With the current market it might be a good idea to hold off on the transition into tech recruiting until the market stabilizes.

That’s a fair point. With a potential recession looming, it’s probably wise to hold off on starting something new until things are more stable.

Anyone have experience with a required on-site final interview for a fully remote job? I'll have already had an interview with the hiring manager and a teammate and a presentation of a case study. So with some of the team being fully remote and the role I'm interviewing for being fully remote I'm not sure what I should prepare for the on-site. I really want the role and want to respect their process but it's hard to justify visiting (across the country) and getting time off my current role.

I’ve been a data analyst for a little over a year for my current employer.

I want to get a job in data analytics that uses SQL. How do I show that I know SQL without having direct SQL related work experience?
