My advice to other people, is to seek advice from people doing what you want to do. Contact people that are software engineers, product managers, investment bankers, doctors, venture capitalists, etc. Being able to connect and learn from people that have done it before is big and will allow you to grow exponentially faster.
These are people that have the job you want. Many people are receptive and willing to give advice. There is so much to learn from just talking to someone. Ask them about their experience with the job, how they got there, and any advice for you moving towards their career.
This will help you figure out what you want out of your career and help to show you how to get there. They can provide some of the best guidance for you because they have been in your shoes before. Go ask someone for advice.
