I work as a System/Network Administrator who has always loved computers and got the job from self-learning no actual college experience.
I believe I chose the right industry but in the wrong position. I am burnt out and tired of the anxiety of wondering if some outage will happen while I’m sleeping etc. I know part of it is probably the company I work for but after 3 years, I’ve felt the shift of excitement for this kind of work to more of an annoyance.
My question, do you think it would be easier for me to get hired coming from an IT role to Developer? Or will that experience not really help me? I am trying to decide if I should stay or if that experience would prove valuable. I prefer to commit to switching careers.
