Since I more or less stumbled into working in tech through a coding bootcamp, my only goal was to get a job where I could continue learning - ideally one that paid my rent - and keep it. I got hired as a Junior Frontend Developer and have been working as such for 18 month now. It's only very recently that I start to even think about what else is out there in terms of career development. Really interesting to me that other people start with a 'high' goal in mind and work towards that - personally I at most think of the immediate next step (which in my case would be a mid level position)...
Thanks for sharing your story 🙏🏻 Frankly, as a person who spent 5+ years in the university and then needed to learn practical skills from scratch, bootcamps are delivering pretty well! Moving in smaller, more realistic steps is much healthier for the mental health and sleeping schedule after all 😄
It'll be exciting to hear how you will reflect on your path when in the senior position.
Best of luck with the promotion 🤞🏻
