Tips for someone not currently working in tech but striving to be? I’ve submitted hundreds of applications and get a few bites here and there, but can’t get the thought of not having tech experience out of recruiters heads. Any help is appreciated.

Tons of free coding websites. They've got courses and everything. That knowledge and experience directly translates. Then just market it on your resumé as what you're capable of doing for them rather than what you have(n't) done.

Although experience is awesome, it’s OK to be at the starting point. I would much rather invest in someone who’s really good at what they do than someone who has 10-15 years experience being rigid about the way they do things. Managers hate that. Start working on side projects and build up a portfolio. That will be more valuable than any other thing you can do. Also tell recruiters and potential bosses that you’re malleable and able to pick up new concepts quickly (but only if that’s true).
