I need advice.
I am a final year computer science college student and its that time to decide which career to break into. For the longest time I have fantasized about being a software engineer. However, my last internship was as a Program Manager which I enjoyed and realized its something I would also like to pursue as a career. Yet, I feel the life of a software engineer matches quiet well with my personality.
So im here because, I am applying for fresher jobs or Junior roles in engineering but my work experience is that of a program manager. By the way I am also a supervisor of a group python and robotics tutors. So on my resume, I seem more like someone with leadership experience and project management and not much of a software engineer since I have only a few projects.
Somehow I feel this is why I get rejected for all of the software engineering junior and internship roles i apply to.
Any advice? Should join Program Management where i think it would be easier to break into since i have more experience or should I pursue software engineering which would require me to work harder since I have no work experience here.
