    they will, but the tech hiring economy is entering a period where you'll need hustle and persistence to get people to give you a chance, it's not effortless like it was for a while

    Programming is one of the most age discriminated fields on the planet and you want to jump in at 36? Assuming you do a 4 year degree you'll be out in your 40s, no one will even think of giving you an internship, and now you'll be a grad with no work experience trying to get in with 0 experience. Not happening.
    You've got 3 routes.
    Start at a shitty help desk position and try to work your way up to manager, that's about as good as it'll get for you.
    You're too old to join most branches of the military but you could get into the Air Force. Afterward try to claim disability or use your benefits to get a degree and then work for one of the large contracting companies that need people with security clearances.
    Or just keep working, it's probably not that bad. I'm not sure what you were thinking trying to break into a field like this so late in your life at the worst possible time in the market (so far).

            He wanted honest advice not your Naruto-tier "believe it" bullshit. There's thousands of layed off devs with years and years of experience and you think this guy who's done nothing but buck breaking labor his whole life is going to land any of the remaining positions? Get a grip.

      And what you just said is precisely why I despise the homosexuals who were repeating "just learn to code, bro" like the vapid trained seals that they are. Because of literally everything you just said. And that's why I have no fricking sympathy for any of absolute shitheads that are kvetching about AI takin their jerbs.

    No one will hire you but you should learn to code and make software. It isn't hard and we really need more people to do it for free. Thanks.

    you should learn programming and then apply for software tester positions, it's very adjacent to programming depending on the job. Some even program a bit

    Bro, it's too late. There are 100k laid off gaymans with fancy degrees and years of exp at top companies. There are 100k new grads every year. The day of getting a job like this in that situation are over, unless your uncle works at Nintendo you're SOL.

      This isn't even rational as advice. This is why I know you guys are NEETs. He's not competing with those guys for those positions, he's competing for a junior programming role that pays better than his manual labor job.

    Why are these threads always full of so much low iq moron cope and projection? It’s not hard to get into tech at all if your iq is over 100. Learn programming, write some actual software, put it on github, and you’ll have a guaranteed ticket to employment. Nobody gives a frick how old you are or where you went to college if you know how to write software, because >95% of employed “software engineers” have never actually written a fully functional piece of software in their lives.

    Imagine being the 40 year old moron intern working for the senior IC who is 28 years old and the PM who is 23. Any moron trying to break into this biz for the money at 36+ is in for a rude awakening. Not going to sugarcoat this shit for you idiots.

    It's funny the contrast between this board and forums where most people are actual IT workers and not anon. This board is full of anons who gatekeep and feel threatened by new entrants, try to discourage them as much as possible, while other places are like "yes we have 36 year old junior programmers who used to be electricians/whatever" "yes I went from help desk to sys admin in x years" etc.

    Op I would say the actual reason to not do this is you will end hating programming for a living all the same and realize everyone's experience as an employee sucks, modern slavery. Do programming (or anything else) because you are genuinely interested in it, not because you think it will be the Good Jerb. If you are doing it just for that you will fail at the first hurdles or inevitable rough patches

      Yes it's interesting. I don't live in the US or Western Europe, but in my third world corner of the world, the tech job market has been increasingly appreciating and seeking IT workers and programmers over 40, since most zoomers and late millennials just can't into technology (don't know what files and folders are, can't operate printers, etc)
      We had a phase of "if you're over 30 you're too old to start in tech" but that was a long time ago, when these guys who are now in their 40s were in their 20s.

    I’m sorry OP but you’re late. The 3rd world has piled into the tech sector for a decade following the same promise of a lifestyle upgrade you are doing now and the job market is currently brutally oversaturated. You can get a job, even an entry-level one, but you will be grinding for a LONG time and you just lose hope after a while. So I’m not saying impossible, it’s not as if there isn’t still a lot of positions opening up all the time, only that those positions will get hundreds or even THOUSANDS of applicants. You’re unironically better off getting into some healthcare field, HVAC service, etc and so on. You CAN still pursue the dream of a white collar office job but you’re going up against the 3rd world so you have figure out if that’s a race you want or can join in on.
