Iíve been working as an accountant for the last 12 years in the manufacturing industry. Have experience of system implementation and report writing, love working with MS Access, and encoding embedded VB modules. I always regretted not doing computer science. I would like to research the possibility of a career change to programmer at this late stage, still think I would excel in that career and have alot to offer employers.
Could anyone give advise with the following
- How to find out if I really have an aptitude for this career ?
- What steps would be required to make this leap?
- What language/job would allow me to make use of my accounting experience ?
- Finally how would this career path seem to employers?
