Last year, I got to look at the insurance world from the other side. Let me tell you, the abyss is bottomless and has monsters. It’s not a career choice I wanted to make but I jumped on the options available.
Yeah, still don’t want to be an insurance agent.
The thing is that I’m getting interviews for designer positions, some multiple times. Yet, I lose out to those with a college degree. Yes, I have a degree, Ã‚Â but I don’t have a full developer tool set.
And let’s not kid ourselves, the ads all want folks with a bigger package to offer in web development.
So I made an appointment at Devry to see what it would take to go back to school for web development. Apparently it takes five minutes. So I enrolled.
I don’t have a job right now. I still need that, of course. Next week thought I start my first college course in 11 years. It feels freaky. I’m still using my degree. I have more books in me yet.
