entry cloud jobs, what is the reality?
So I have come across posts from people entering the cloud industry with no IT experience other than an IT degree. The posts usually say through basically spending several months learning AWS, getting the associates trifecta and building out a portfolio of projects and then proceeding to getting hired into junior cloud roles.
I am wondering if these are unicorn scenarios or is the demand really that high right now that someone dedicated can get into this rather quickly? I was under the impression that the technical side of IT takes years to work ones way into more specialized positions.
I am about to graduate as an Information Systems graduate myself and have basic database knowledge and programming knowledge. However, most of my classmates go into IT business analysis which isn’t really a technical role and I don’t know if thats what I want to do as a career.
I have always been fascinated by the more technical domain of cloud computing but i’m simply not sure if it’s reasonable to pursue right now.
