Sounds like you could have gone to the same 'technical college' as I did Smile | :)

As a hiring manager myself, I wouldn't be averse to taking on somebody in your position, but would need to see some evidence of your commitment. The easiest way to demonstrate that is by developing a working application that you can show off. For example, a browser-based application that does something vaguely useful, and demonstrates that you can create a UI that does stuff with a database.

I wish you all the very best in your career change, and hope you find your way to something that elevates your soul instead of crushing it!
