Met an old friends from college. Glad that she is going to take the leap of faith and do Hack Reactor too. Wish her the best of luck.
Career change is never an easy decision, especially after getting a PhD in one field. We need to believe that we have learned a lot of transferal skills in graduate school. Also the sheer determination that helped us get through graduate school will also help us tremendously down the road, no matter which road we end up taking.
