I was truly blessed when I was offered a job right after finishing my undergraduate’s degree in 2015. After two years working in the sports industry in Portland, I realized that some of my passions and curiosities lied in the tech industry in Seattle. The logical method when transitioning is to find a job before quitting. That wasn’t the case for me because it was too difficult for me to interview in a different city during work hours.

Make it worth your while and admit that it’s hard. Job hunting is a full time job of itself.
