Jack of all trades master of none Looking for career advise.

I've got into tech about 5 years ago since then I've worked in SQL, excel, database administration, PowerShell, html, some python, shell, SharePoint, power automate, power apps, various apis and other software.

I feel like I just keep taking on small bits of information/skills but never get specialized. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to go from here or been in a similar situation?

Thank you for your insight.

Hmmm. That is an interesting suggestion suggestion. Thank you!

Statistics. Or DevOps. Or graphic design. Hard to say, need more specifics.

Statistics makes the most sense

What is your current job title? With Python, shell an SQL you’ve got a great skills for a backend software engineer

Right now it's enterprise application engineer. Thanks! That's another great suggestion

Love that Aquarium and Monterey in general. Why not focus on the Power Platform? I've kind of tailored my LinkedIn for it, and I can't beat recruiters off.

Really? I've never been able to really understand the market for it. I do like working in the power platform, I'm just not sure how it translates to a specific job or career path.

The title for what you describe you do now is "business analyst." From here, you can go into management for your field or become more technical (or both). Consulting and analytics/BI management are the former. Data science and data engineering are the latter.

I think there's more OPs based roles on the BA front that might be worth looking at but I agree, overall BA is the best fit

If you work in tech your skills are in demand. We have a choice about where we work. If your employer is more evil than the average corporation that’s on you. Figure out the companies you refuse to work for on ethical grounds before you start looking for a job.
