Yes, even though the tech market is dominated by computer science degrees, many SE doesn't have a computer science degree. The best way is to go to a startup where you can start taking on more responsibilities and then jump into a larger company.

Yes, there is. You don't have to necessarily have a computer science degree. Engineers can be good in different areas even if it's not normally the program they are specialized to work on with. You'll be surprised there lots of opportunities for engineers especially in the field of tech.

Plug for a buddy of mine who started the best SE/presale community.

Presales Collective.

Great community, great training, everything. If you're interested in the profession, start there.

Totall agree with bootcamps. You can also get some certifications. Some companies also value certs so you'll have a chance for sure.
