Any other women out there struggling to stay technical in your career?
I've been struggling to do so due to factors like people not believing in me (having to prove people wrong just to burn out and still not getting projects), and just in general working at startups that just need to figure out jobs definitions.
Looking for any advice on how to successfully stay technical even if you're not given the projects, or what you did to stay in your role and change the dynamic!
Edit: Thanks everyone for the multitude of perspectives! I’m feeling more empowered. I’ve had only a short career so far but I’ve been burnt out so many times already and it’s hard not to feel like I should just give up.
Obviously based on the comments, this post would apply to anyone and the main question is still to get advice on if and when you recognize you’re stuck, woman, man, minority, rich, poor, etc.
I’m in hardware with a so I’ve also held myself back because job hunting is a process for my field and I really really wanted this place to work out.
Thanks everyone 🙏
