Hi Women in Tech,
Any advice for positioning myself to be in demand in the future? In my current role I have always heard a lot from leadership about coming automation and yet the years have passed and I find myself doing the same repetitive, data entry based tasks. Many of my tasks fall under the guise of "the way it is for a scrappy start up. " But, I'm either suffering from imposter syndrome or just truly not smart enough to excel further in my day to day tasks in tech. How do I start getting roles which challenge me to use my brain, be more strategic, and influence company decisions? How can I move away from doing data entry, basic tech support, and enforcing processes for younger/less experienced employees? It may be simply the case for the tech company where I work now and I need to seek out a new job? I really want more and I don't know what moves to make. I want to be a bad ass conduit between the business side and the tech side of a company. I have always felt I am the person who sits in the middle and can talk to sales folks and tech minds alike with equal success relating to both types of people. How do I do more of this and stay in demand as I get older? I welcome any thoughts!
