From my experience they look more towards demonstrating your abilities and experience over a particular type of education
I enjoyed logic and problem solving, so decided to try development (kind of on a whim) when I was looking for a career change. I did a coding bootcamp which gave me enough experience to get started, and then I was lucky to have some good mentors help me learn on the job.
I work typical work hours and spend most of my day working on the computer. At my current job there is a lot of group discussion and planning, so there is typically a chunk collaboration time everyday.
I like problem solving and especially figuring our solutions as a team.
Flexibility, easy to work from home and always evolving industry with new things to learn
It's a lot of time looking at a computer and some jobs require extra support work outside of regular working hours.
Start learning online. There are lots of resources out there and you can start learning and building right away.
Problem solving, logic, creativity, attention to detail, ability to collaborate with team members, explain your ideas and receive feedback
