Your experience goes way back in the field
My first manager back in the dark ages (1962) is a good case in point. She came to DC in 1938 as a clerk typist/file clerk. When computers first started her then boss sent her to school so she would learn how to work with the programmers. She ended up as the best in the class and got hired as a programmer. With a high school education only she was a GS-15 and assistant manager of the department. She was also a self-taught artist who had paintings hanging in the Corcoran Gallery and the manager of a women's softball team as well. Quite a woman. I learned so much from her and she was great to work with so long as you did not lie to her. One of the best bosses I ever had. In what other field could she have come even close to what she accomplished.
