Switching Careers: From PT to IT
The biggest risk in life is not taking one. Would you switch careers in the middle of the pandemic to a field that you have no experience in? That is exactly what Yuki did: he was on the brink of starting his doctorate for physical therapy when he decided to make the last minute change to become a DBA. Yuki and his mentor, John Morehouse, both found themselves in unique positions on opposite ends of their careers with a long road ahead of them. Listen to Yuki's unique journey of becoming a DBA and hear John's advice on how to mentor someone from early days.
Join Yuki Hata and John Morehouse's session as Yuki discusses his journey to become a DBA from scratch and John mentoring someone from the ground up.
