I’m considering a position doing RPA development and Low Code integration for for a consultancy. I’ve been primarily doing process work in my current role but I’m familiar with the technical aspects of this space. Is it too late to build skills in the RPA & Low Code areas? Is this still a space that is worth building competency in? Ultimately my goal is to get some experience doing solutioning type work, while I build more technical (programming) skills. I’d like to do product work in the end

Yah there is plenty of opportunity but you need to have more advanced knowledge to really provide value. Unless you are looking to start entry level. In that case I’m sure there are plenty of roles, but honestly it isn’t about the technical skill. Soft skills are important as well

Thank you for the insight. I am looking to get in at entry / associate level. I was just wondering if it’s a good place to build skills since I’m technically taking a slight step back. But I think it’s an interesting space and the work is more important to me than title rn

It will be nice for you to have the certificatiobs

My husband told me that he feels parenting our 2 yr old is a burden. He’s actually a great parent and loves our son but hates all the hard work that goes with it (wake ups / getting ready for daycare / sick days / tantrums). Neither of us wants to take a step back in our career to care more time for our son, and we don’t want the other person to either. We’re considering an Au pair, but I’m mourning the fact that we, and especially he, aren’t parents that love parenting. Anyone in the same boat?

Both jobs are in a city notorious for it's high cost-of-living (my partners job is moving us from the midwest to SF this summer), so several thousand dollars difference *WILL* be noticeable.
