Working 'in' technology rather than alongside it is inspiring my returner journey


I've worked in technology sales for the past 5+ years and whilst i've loved learning about technology the sales side hasn't been fulfilling and so this year I have dedicated myself to a career change! I have started my own business cat sitting and also learning coding all whilst working a 'normal' job being an order processor. In my spare time I love to travel with my partner with Orlando and New York particular favourites.


I haven't had any professional training as such other than learning the technologies I was promoting and selling to the channel. I had to learn how technology worked in regards of being on premise or in the cloud and general knowledge of infrastructure.

In preparation for Tech Returners I have been studying a Udemy Course, Code Academy and Freecodecamp.

Why a career in Tech

I have always had a keen interest in technology, but working alongside it rather than 'in it' I never felt fulfilled as my targets were focused on sales and partner relationships. I'm keen to explore technology more and to use my commercial skills to help improve the technology so that it is developed with the client in mind.
