Trying to move to an SWE role with non-tech background. Suggestions?
Hey so I'm a Philosophy major at Stanford, but I want to move into a SWE. I've posted on Blind too but thought I might get some advice from y'all.
Now don't throw Monkey shit for Philosophy to SWE transition. I have taken about 4 courses in computer science and learned basics of Python, Java, C, C# and an intro to robotics.
I choose my major cause I loved the subject and the plan was to do the amazing CS + Philosophy joint major. YES it exists. But due to the course load and poor planning in the first year, I couldn't complete it.
So now the problem is that since I don't have "CS" on my degree, I'm not getting any decent job offers though I mention my coding experience. I just want to get past the first round of weeding and then I'm confident I can take things forward if I land an interview.
Any suggestions or help would be great!
