Fork me on GitHub

Hi everyone: I'm trying to re-enter the tech job sphere after a several decade hiatus (into law). I've been trying to keep/catch up on a couple of the technologies that interest me (e.g. Forth/Factor, Lisp/Clojure, Unix/Linux/NixOS/Guix) but I obviously don't have any recent work experience/portfolio/references nor really any desire to mount some kind of intense marketing campaign right now. I do have an exceedingly small monthly "nut" to cover (a couple thousand dollars) and a decent location (SF Bay Area) so it wouldn't cost someone much to give me a try. I'm wondering if anyone here has any advice for me, like, for example, how I might go about procuring a talent agent/recruiter to solicit/negotiate positions/gigs for me, best places to meet potential employers (considering most meetups are merely virtual now), etc...?


If you find any company that has a legal-related app/product you can probably get paid pretty well to learn on the job 😅 I don't have any other "wisdom" to offer, unfortunately

@hobosarefriends I don't really care if it's legal related or not at this point, but yeah, that might help with my transition back, thanks.


Just go for it
