Can someone figure out what I should do with my life?
I am a 27 year old guy who completed his BCA (Bachelor of Computer Applications) 2 years ago with 73% distinction. I really enjoy computers and computer programming but I am in bit of a confused state. Since I completed my BCA I have been working in something other than my field but I am not happy and really want to get into the IT field. My problem is it’s been years since I programmed and I am not really a good coder (but I really want to be one). Let me elaborate on that.
Problem 1:- I am not a confident person as a whole. I am always self-conscious of what people say or think about me which bothers me a lot. I can speak & read English just fine but when it comes to writing (on a paper) I am not very good with spellings & my handwriting is like a 2 year old( or worse). I do a lot of spelling mistakes and I always get scared if someone is looking over my shoulder when I write/type something because I don’t want to embarrass myself.
Problem 3:- because of my problems as mentioned in problem 1 & 2, I am afraid of even going in for an interview in IT. I am scared I will embarrass myself while filling in the form for the interview or while writing any kind of written test in an interview or failing to write some simple program asked in an interview. I don’t know what to do. I am really frustrated with myself. I don’t know how to get over this problem. I want to do something with my life. I want to be successful but don’t know how to get over my problems.
Any kind of suggestion is welcome, Thank you.
