Remote work is here to stay: after being forced to work from home in 2020, it seems we’ve sort of realized it’s actually fine to skip the commute and join the company meeting from the comfort of your sofa. Or is it? While remote work certainly sounds easy and laid-back, it’s not just about remembering to unmute yourself on the Zoom call: remote brings its own challenges, and if you’re aiming to get hired for a remote or hybrid role, you have to get comfortable with it, and show you’re capable of giving your best in an online environment and aligning with the company and with your coworkers.

Have you been thinking about switching careers? You wouldn’t be the first: about half of the workforce is considering a job change, and 20% have already taken the leap in 2022, joining professional fields with growing demand, such as Tech. They call it the Great Reshuffle for a reason: even in the most unpredictable of times, workers have raised their standards and aren’t afraid to go for it, because pivoting careers might not be as difficult as you think.

As we begin to emerge from the crisis, a lot of people are now pivoting to new careers and seeking new jobs.

As our world becomes more intertwined with technology, many people are considering a career change to the tech sector because of its in-demand job market. For many, being in technology is an enticing field because you can start without previous experience and it’s a flexible market where diverse experiences and skills are valued. However, for those thinking of changing careers, enrolling in a university to complete a degree related to a computer science, software development, UI/UX design or any other tech field might not be an option. Taking the traditional university route into tech can be cumbersome for some people who don’t have the time or financial means. As an alternative option many people wonder if joining a coding bootcamp is worth their time to transition careers. Regardless of where you are in your research, it's important to consider all your options.
