What Career Pivot is Right for You? The 3-Minute Quiz

Are you ready for a major (or even minor) career change? This 3-minute quiz will help you determine what next move is the right move for you, then give you guidance on where to start.

This article is part of Making Moves Week where we’re exploring the ways you can change your career effective immediately. Don’t change who you are, change where you are.  

Whether you’re transitioning to a new career, returning to the workforce after time away, or simply looking for your first job, there’s nothing more frustrating than sifting through job listings that ask for experience you don’t have.  

Good news! Entry-level jobs ARE out there (even remote ones). To help nudge you in the right direction we’ve put together this list of 20 junior tech and tech-adjacent jobs, all requiring 0-3 years of previous experience. 

If you’ve got tech skills and a lot of enthusiasm (but not as much on-the-job experience. . .yet), these are the jobs for you. And if you’re looking to add to your skill set en route to applying for your own dream job, consider building your skills with one of Skillcrush’s 3-month, instructor-led Blueprint courses.
