Yisel’s Answer

Hi Amos,

Your question is truly remarkable. My journey began in the healthcare sector as I always had a desire to serve others. My initial role was as a nursing assistant in a long-term care facility, primarily caring for the elderly. Simultaneously, I was pursuing my college education and managed to earn an Associate's degree in Healthcare Administration. Additionally, I gained experience working in a pharmacy, specifically Eckerd, which sadly no longer exists.

My passion for healthcare led me to seek more knowledge and skills. I volunteered in EMS, acquired my CPR certification, and furthered my studies by obtaining a Bachelor's in Business. After gaining substantial experience in long-term care, I transitioned into the pharmacy sector. This move was complemented by my pursuit of a Master's degree in Psychology/Behavioral Health. Consequently, I found myself in the fascinating intersection of pharmacy and Artificial Intelligence, working alongside advanced AI robotics.

I believe it's crucial to thoroughly enjoy exploring all aspects of your passion. This approach not only enhances your skills but also broadens your horizons, opening doors to new opportunities. Remember, starting in one area doesn't limit your journey. You're free to traverse and discover new paths. So, dive into your chosen career with an open mind and heart, ready to explore the endless possibilities.

Jerome’s Answer

I started out by working as an electronics technician. Not well-paid, but I got a lot of valuable experience on which I still fall back, 40+ years later. The key is to get started -- don't worry too much about salary or benefits, just get a foot in the door and build your resume. I'd say that if it's possible, go work as a teacher's aide or something similar so you can decide if you actually like the work and want to continue with it as a career -- going to college first and then discovering you don't like the field is a costly mistake.

Good luck!

Kodi’s Answer

Amos great question and one thing I would like to point out is that you can "start" many times over. How I got to where I am today as a software engineer was not on my original path plans. I originally wanted to travel the world and teach, which I did. I started by getting my degree in education and getting two years of experience in the states and then looked for opportunities overseas. I was able to teach in China and Japan for about 7 years in total. During the pandemic I came back to the US and did not have a job. One thing I learned about living overseas is how to adapt to challenging environments. I did my research on career fields that I would be interested in (tech being one of them) and wrote down a road map. This road map included how would I learn this new skill of coding, how long would it take to learn, what I would need on my resume to show proof of my new skills, etc.

With both teaching overseas and becoming a software engineer they start in a similar way. One I identify what my end goal is, then I break the steps to get there down into the smallest, simplest steps that I can. I try to give realistic timelines for each step and a game plan for how I can complete each step. I highly recommend if you don't know already is SMART goals. The end goal at times can look like a giant mountain and overwhelming, but each mountain is climbed one step at a time, section by section. So whatever it is that you want to start doing, break that end goal down into smaller goals and stay disciplined, if you "fail" THAT IS OK, keep trying and learn from the "failure." "Fail fast and fail forward" is a great mindset when starting something new. Also remember discipline over motivation, if you stay disciplined you will put in the work even when not motivated, create manageable routines and stick to them or change as necessary. I believe in you Amos, by already asking questions you are on the right track. Best of luck to you!
