Career advice is off-topic per Help Center. Please note that most career advice questions run the risk of being closed for being too broad or impractical: try to make yours a good subjective question.

Questions about developing one's career can be asked as long as they invite the unique insights of a programmer and are specifically about developing one's career as a programmer.

Please also make sure your question has the proper scope. If your question can also be applied to other jobs then it's not really something that uniquely applies to software development and isn't on-topic here.
