After doing some serious soul searching, I want to pivot into SWE/web development. Preferably full stack. Only on point experience is having built 3 personal websites in Wordpress = nothing but something that shows my passion?
Going to try for the bootcamp path. But, would love to speak to some SWEs. I think 70% of my network is lawyers.

Hey guys/gals. Hoping to get some guidance on here. I’m considering making a pivot into industry (Big Pharma specifically) towards the end of next year (right after I’m up for promotion to Manager). Ideally exiting into industry in the marketing function. The problem is I’m not sure what marketing role my background best prepares me for. More on my background below…
Thanks for starting this bowl. I am fairly new to fishbowl and I would consider myself a non-traditional candidate for consulting, looking to pivot out of industry. Would love to get some help and be mentored on how I could make this happen?
Hi, I'm looking for a mentor so I can pivot from e&i to software and devops. I love figuring out how things work. To me it is all a big mysterious puzzle to figure out and make work. I love seeing the pieces click together and suddenly begin doing something productive.
I'm currently learning python for self directed tasks and am working on skills related to OOP and software design patterns as well as studying to renew my CCNP Collaboration and working towards a CCNA DevNet.

Hey guys! Went to college with full intention of getting into medical school. Graduated right before the pandemic which gave time to think long and hard about going to med school. Decided I was doing it for all the wrong reasons, and am trying to pivot into consulting. I’ve reached out to hundreds on LinkedIn, which lead to a few referrals, but have heard nothing back from any firms. Anyone willing to help me out with some advice and guidance?
Thanks for starting the bowl John. Huge fan of BCG Texas.
