Career change: I've been an informatics teacher for a few years now and I'd like to apply for some programming opportunities. Do you think I'll make a strong candidate or is this silly?
Thank you so much for your question!
Yes, I do think you'd make a strong candidate for programming jobs.
I think your hesitations about feeling silly come from your expectations, and will change based on the companies you apply for.
The key to a strong job search is understanding your skill set, where your knowledge lays, and what are your strengths before applying for a job. Try and reflect whether you truly have the skills for the role.
