strategic advice is needed at an important stage in life
I am 46, I have 3 children (4, 7 and 14), I just came from Ukraine to America under the “United for Ukraine” program.
All my life I worked as a technologist in the food industry, but it so happened that now my wife works (from 9 am to 5 pm) and I take care of the children… The youngest will be taken to school only for half a day, so I will look for some part-time work in the second shift from September.
My parents, who are very simple people without a higher education, and their “go to the food field, you won’t be hungry” at that moment finally tipped the scales…
In my youth, I had a tendency to study (school, technical school and Lviv Polytechnic with honors) and an inexplicable attraction to computers in particular 🙂
Therefore, I am asking the esteemed society of forum members for well-thought-out and balanced advice.
I want to try to learn some IT direction, which:
1. dynamically developing (specialists in this field are in demand);
2. will allow working remotely;
3. if possible, does not require deep fundamental knowledge (this is unnecessary time and not the fact that my aging gray matter is capable of this…). However, the first two points are a priority.
Please do not write emotional and in your opinion witty short answers.
Also, tell me how exactly I can understand which of the directions I like. Maybe there are some special tests…
I will wait for meaningful letters with facts (before writing, consider that your advice can be decisive and you will change both my life and the future of my large family…).
