I’m after some honest advice here.
Now If I was still in my teens this would likely be easier, but I’m 42 and changing career at this point is somewhat harder. Family, other commitments etc. I look at a lot of the junior roles and the starting pay scale is very low compared to where I am now. 25K starting pay would have been a dream when I was 18, but that is half my current salary.
At the moment everyone around me says concentrate of the power platform as that will command good pay ability in the future, I could go down many different branches. But it is power platform only. I’m not allowed to use any custom HTML, or anything which doesn’t come out of the box as standard. Which I find quite annoying.
At the moment I don’t have a portfolio of projects to show off my HTML experience, so my only experience is in power apps and what I’ve learn through here on the code academy website. My low code role is also only temporary, so within 18 months I could be out. I’ve looked at other jobs but they all seem to want so much experience in languages, not one either but multiple.
My biggest worry is knowing a bit of everything, and being a master of none like the saying goes. Kind of hard to know what direction to go really. I’m thinking do I bail now on the power platform and pick a language in a low paid job and master that, or stick with it and do my own code around the side.
Would love anyone’s thoughts.
