042 - Should I Quit My Job?

14 Nov, 2017

Quitting a well-paying, decent job to become a programmer is a big decision. This episode is all about the pros & cons.

Although the initial impetus to pursue a coding career was very reactive to a bad situation, I truly threw myself into—and got excited about—pursuing a career as a developer. But as the sting of a bad work situation wore off, all of the great things about the job I’d be leaving came more into the forefront. Not to mention the stories out there about non-diverse, workaholic workplaces in tech. Is this really a good decision?

No answers guaranteed in this episode, but here’s a glimpse into the thought process involved with leaving one career for another.
