    Can you elaborate a bit more on your background?
    What exactly did you do in IT and in insurance? Years of experience?

      Great. Is there a specific role in tech you'd like to have?

      Two things (my two cents):

      1. Given the experience you have as a BA, I'd try to get back in IT as a BI developer/engineer. Many tech companies have that role. It opens doors to data science, product development or further BI development work. I'd also consider consulting.

      2. Try to get an IT role within an insurance company. You have both technical experience and domain knowledge of insurance industry.

      Hope this helps :)
