There are so many things to consider when asking yourself, “Should I change my career?”
It’s a question often bred from boredom or dissatisfaction, while many confront the issue out of sheer necessity. No one wants to recycle their resume or scavenge endless job postings. Nor does anyone want to recover from the sting of a barren inbox two weeks after the interview. Apart from the grit of the job search cycle, the process of exploring a new profession is exciting. As the world evolves, so does the landscape of employment. The technology industry, for example, maintains the largest demand for skilled labor with some of the highest rates of salary increases to date year after year.
Amidst the stress of transition, it’s essential to remember that you are not alone in your deliberation. Over fifty-percent of the U.S. workforce considered a career change last year. After taking the first step of deciding to change your career, you might ask yourself, “How do I transition from my current role?” As you contemplate taking the plunge, below are the reasons why no-code jobs should be at the top of your list.
The 10 Reasons to Choose No-Code... From Someone Who Did It
By now, you’ve probably heard of the expression “The Great Resignation” but there’s quite little conversation about what’s next…It’s easy to walk away from the roles that weren’t serving our needs with obvious reasons to part ways; but what happens when the job you have is not the job you want? I found myself at this crossroads after seven years in the fashion industry.
Transitioning out of a niche industry (any industry for that matter) can feel daunting. Making the decision to change careers comes down to factors that can be considered practical, preferable, or paragon. Here are ten reasons why careers in low code meet all three:
1. If you are considering a side hustle, look no further than the no-code industry.
In the age of supplementing our work and optimizing our time, side hustles have become a standard practice. One of the best platforms to explore your interest in no-code is Bubble. As a leading entity in the space for MVP development, Bubble not only offers free access to its tool, but provides seemingly endless multimedia resources to its community. It is the perfect medium to build a portfolio of projects with a high demand for internal and freelance developers across the globe.
2. You should change careers to no-code if you want to enhance your resume.
Over two million users have already taken advantage of all that Bubble has to offer. As the product continues to popularize, the demand for talent continues to grow. Not only does this mean no-code developers are highly sought after, but you can become an asset to non tech-enabled businesses. Allow yourself to be set apart from competition.
Learning Bubble demonstrates a disciplined work ethic by adopting a new skill. Programs like Momentum Academy’s Part Time Intensive are available and designed to turn you into a no-code professional in eight weeks. According to Momentumgroup.tech, it’s “The quickest path to becoming an intermediate to advanced Bubble Developer.”
3. Learning no-code development can supplement your education.
The task of pursuing a new degree can be a major deterrent from changing one’s career. Hard skills such as web development or coding generally require years of study to amass a certain level of sophistication. On the other hand, Bubble development is not only easy to learn, but affordable to learn.
Free resources such as the public forums, YouTube videos, or Bubble Docs manual allow users to become experts at their own pace. Bubble and supporting agencies such as Momentum Group Tech offer programs to improve your developer skills. The agency recently announced its latest Momentum Academy running August 15th to October 4th. An exceptional course taught by experts in not only Bubble development, but UX/UI Design, Technical Architecture, and Product Management.
4. Low code jobs are age and industry friendly.
Taking the plunge of leaving your industry might present its challenges. Especially for those who have committed to one discipline throughout their career. One of the added benefits to going low code is that you can begin learning at any age or career stage.
Whether you are a veteran in your field seeking something different or have freshly obtained a degree in a field you don’t love; pivoting to low code is another avenue requiring only a commitment to the task of practice. You may be shocked to learn that many agencies are saturated in an array of industry backgrounds and age groups.
I was pleasantly surprised to meet experts in Sales, Healthcare, Music, Digital Advertising, Construction, and more at my current Bubble agency.
5. You should change careers to no-code, because it combats monotony.
For those seeking a role that brings everyday excitement, you cannot beat the spontaneity that comes with being a Bubble Developer. When the core of your job rests on problem solving, the opportunities are endless. Finding solutions for clients, by way of design, roadmapping, and data relationships makes for stimulating day to day challenges. Although you may find yourself programming to the rhythm of widely used workflows, there is an infinite amount of unique applications to peak your interest.
6. No-code jobs are creative.
If you are creative at heart, it’s worthwhile to consider the outlet a no-code job offers. When it comes to designing products, the autonomy of platforms like Bubble allow you to explore boundless development possibilities. Competing services are often more rigid or manufactured with ready-made inputs that can stifle design freedom. Everything from curating stylistic templates to providing your services as a wireframe architect can feed your inner creativity.
7. No-code jobs are also analytical.
If creativity doesn’t quite catch your attention, perhaps delving into the analytical will? For every front end display you must remember there’s a backend value. Those who prefer to work out puzzles over portraits may find themselves giddy to interact with low code data structures. If you have experience in coding, but are looking for a career in no-code, you may find solace in the structural side of development.
8. You should change careers to no-code if you enjoy remote work.
As we anticipate life after the pandemic-that-shall-not-be-named, corporate organizations are taking various approaches to the future of work. Are you part of the 52% workforce hoping to continue working from home? If so, have a glance at the growing numbers of emerging remote positions in no-code. Global agencies like mine offer a flexible work structure that prioritizes productivity over a performative presence. Not only can you manage your obligations at home, but benefit from competitive employment packages on an exceptional international team.
9. In search of a flexible work environment? *Surprise* no-code jobs are the answer.
Perhaps remote work isn't a priority, but setting your own schedule is paramount. One of the greatest perks upon immersing oneself into the world of no-code is the flexibility that comes with working in a freelance capacity. If you are the type of person who thrives in self sufficient environments, managing your own calendar and roster of clients might be the best route for you. Not to mention, the freedom of creating your own schedule can drastically improve your work life balance.
10. Changing careers to no-code can help get your business off the ground.
Last but not least, as a Bubble Immerse alumna, I am biased on the tenth reason to switch to no code. Consider this point a conglomerate of all of the above. No/Low code may be the best resource to get your business off the ground. Not only will you be able to launch your own app, but you get to understand the inner workings of what makes a successful product.
Understanding the common pain points under the hood of MVPs can help you navigate the challenges of your own venture. Becoming a developer during your transition to a full-time founder can offer the premier environment for supplementing the infamous early days of startup life.
When it comes to choosing to go no-code full time, ‘weighing your options’ becomes oddly superfluous. There truly is no better emerging industry to combat monotony, offer flexibility, enhance your resume, and beyond.
