How did you get into tech

Was in a related role at my current job but honestly I studied, read, and practiced my ass off both on interviews as well as mock projects. I really changed my approach to work just to get in that mindset.

I would say take the new role and give it a shot! The interviewers must have been impressed by your background, your thought processes during interviews, and also you as a person and made you an offer. I wouldn't think they'll expect you to be 100% ready for the job when you join. They'll train you and help you get settled. As long as you have mindset to learn, you'll do great! And if you don't like it, you can always seek for your next job.

What kinda role in tech?

I think the taste of partner track helped me realize I still have a long time ahead of me in my career and I didn't want to spend it doing the same things I had done for the past few years.

Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?
