Find ways to acquire the skills. Whether that be taking a course/boot camp, landing a similar role, internship, volunteering etc. anywhere you can gain those skillsets. It’s not over yet!

Alsoooo you may already have some skills, how does what you do currently relate to that position is? How do your current skills transfer? Hope this helps

Why do you think you need those skills to be a writer at Adobe?

I haven’t seen many cw roles posted there. I was wondering if learning tech skills would be helpful.

Depends on what roles you're interested in. Take some online courses, there are lots of free ones out there. Be on the lookout for internship opportunities. You mentioned you're a copywriter, do you have experience in writing blog articles or marketing emails for tech companies?

I don’t. I’d be transitioning from another industry.

This is obviously a really hard decision, and I feel like I should listen to my therapist, but my heart is pulling me the other way. Anyone else been through something similar or have advice?
