Right now, I’m at the Help desk level and been there for 2 yrs. What I want to do is transition from the HD to SW dev. I’m having a hard time getting technical interviews because I don’t have a college degree and I don’t have previous “professional” experience and I’m not being taken seriously because of my age I’m 19. Honestly, right now I cannot afford college. Is there anything I can do to transition from the HD to a more programming heavy position?
Once at the developer level and I become more senior. How would I get that prerequisite RE experience all employers are looking for? What are some good certs Like GREM that are good to go along with to give me a chance to receive interviews? I have not been able to find many certs for RE. Would any of the other sec cert be valuable to the skillset I need. Great website will post less and read more.
