Contact Jae Taylor on LinkedIn. He is very much living this scenario.

From what I know Amazon doesn't hire people without a degree. You need to have at least a bachelor. It's pretty stupid and maybe it's not written in stone, but that has been my experience

Pls share your thoughts: currently mid 20s and working in a slow paced company w AMAZING WLB and low pay compared to tech companies but average pay in my current industry. Do you think it's worth moving to a tech company and get paid a lot more but not having as great of a WLB? I'm interviewing for diff companies (a few out of state) and would have to relocate if I receive the offer but some are fully remote positions. Is pay a good trade-off for WLB since I'm still early in my career?
