re: Job != 'Software Developer' - What else? VIEW POST


Before I got into software development, I was on the path to marketing and/or a "creative" role of some kind in writing/design. It was up in the air, but I'd always been creative and I very much enjoyed the creative elements in marketing.

When I got out into the real world, I started feeling creatively constrained and gravitated towards software as an outlet for doing that for real. I always felt like I needed to sell or justify in marketing. In software, I'm doing creative problem solving and the results are inherently satisfying.

It wound up being the case that I did a combination of all the things and my plan B has always been in the marketing realm if I ever found out my imposter syndrome was real and I need to go back to the other stuff.
