One of the first questions I asked myself before I started my training was, “How do beginners get PLC programmer jobs?” At the time, I was taking a course online. I don’t have a degree and I didn’t know anyone who could put in a good word for me, either.
Ok, if you’ve put so much time and money getting to the point where your ready to start interviewing and it’s so important to find and land the right job, then this is the article for you.
You want something different, and somewhere along the way you discovered the world of PLC programming. But you’re 40+, so can you successfully make the change and will you be able to get hired?
Want to Break-Into a Tech Career?
Are you considering programming or design or maybe even electronics? Were going to dig into of the various tech career paths someone could take and we’ll also share why we think the industrial automation path is the best choice for beginners to break-into.
Are you planning your first large $100k+ project? Ever wonder what a $100k+ project proposal looks like? Or maybe you don’t think you’ll ever be asked to write one. Well let me dispel that last one first, if you stay in the automation & robotics industry long enough I can guarantee that sooner or later (possibly in your first year) you will be asked to draft a large $100k+ proposal.
