Do You Want To Switch To A Tech Job? Here’s How You Can Start!

 Earning big bucks, staying at home, and working on your own time. All this is possible if you are working for a tech company that doesn’t require you to come to the office every day to achieve your goals.

While all this is also possible by being a freelancer, however, freelance work does not give a guarantee of a fixed income every month, or even fixed hours of work.

Some months, you might earn a crazy amount of money by working fewer hours, while in some months you have to take up a number of projects to break even.

There is no consistency in freelancing. While there are millions of people who prefer to be their own boss, there are a million others who don’t want to live with the headache of going after clients, going after projects, and making both ends meet.

Freelancing is a great option for someone who is doing a manual job or a labor-extensive job and wants to switch to something comfortable. But if you’re already earning big money by working in tech, sitting at home, freelancing might not be as lucrative for you, because it doesn’t come with the benefits of a full-time job either.

So, if you’re someone who wants to navigate the paths of landing a tech job, here is what you can start with —


Nothing can beat your own research, because it's you who has to work eight hours a day every day for years in the future, so you should do proper research on what interests you and what you can spend time on every day without getting pissed or bored.

A job should not feel like a job, and that’s what tech also offers you! The freedom of working on something that you find interesting.

There are thousands of domains in tech that you can explore while researching, starting from development jobs to more advanced jobs ranging between data science and artificial intelligence.

While all these jobs require specialized knowledge to even enter at a junior level, that is why proper research is recommended, so that you don’t end up wasting your precious time.

Gems like Medium and YouTube!

You may have underestimated it so far, but YouTube and Medium are knowledge-rich resources, coming straight from experienced professionals.

If you want to get into the field of design, for example, you can follow the following publications on Medium — 

, and . These publications will offer you immense knowledge about the field of UX and UI, and the stories are written by professionals working in these fields, in real-time.

Similarly, on YouTube, you will find many channels that teach you the basics of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and many other coding languages.

You can start from basics anywhere, and you don't even need to spend money on taking any classes. The internet is the richest resource of knowledge right now, in this age and time.

Question Yourself!

Lastly, ask yourself as many questions as possible, because in the end, it is you who will have to work every day.

Start by asking yourself if you’re more interested in something logical or something creative.

If you are more interested in analytics and logic, do you want to pursue data science or get specialized knowledge of a tool such as Salesforce or SAP, or ServiceNow?

If you are more interested in a creative field, do you wish to work on the UX part, where you will be challenged with finding logical solutions to problems, or do you only want to beautify the interface and get into UI design?

All these questions will help you clear your own head about what you want to do, and how you want to shape your career.

Getting a job in tech is not that difficult. You only need training in the right module, and mentorship from the right person to design your resume, and apply for jobs.

Once you are trained enough, you can even start by taking up small freelance projects, before you land your first full-time job.

Such freelance projects will also help you strengthen your resume so that the employer will consider you over other candidates because you have more real-time experience.

Tech jobs are more about passion than routine work. If you’re passionate and enjoy your job, you will not feel like you’re working, and that’s the beauty of it.

Do you know why tech jobs are that highly paid? Here’s why!
