The metaphor of a 'career ladder' is gone.

You hear about how careers are now more similar to ‘jungle gyms’. But how do we navigate this? In an industry that is changing constantly? Do you have to be ‘technical’ to work in Tech? I will look back at my career and walk through decisions and circumstances that have got me where I am today – and hopefully by the end of it, share some useful advice for everyone.
