Maria Cristina’s Answer
Hi Alex, good that you took the step to follow your interests. I also change of roles two years ago and I know it can be challenging. For me I knew that I would lost some of the years of experience but at the end will be beneficial because I liked a lot more what I am doing now.
My recommendation will be to find ways of demostrate your knowledge maybe get some certification of courses with actual diplomas to add to your resume. Also you may want to try with programs for basic entry level like the ones for graduate students but that could work for you. An be more expresive in your job interviews, use your previous experience in your favor and combine the best of your knowledge to be a better candidate you can also offer to do some technical interviews to demonstrate your knowledge.
