There is having tech skills, and there is working in tech. These are VERY different things. 

The former is very broad, the latter is comparatively narrow. When it comes to career planning, it’s crucial to understand the distinction. Too many people are opting not to learn tech skills, either because they don’t want to work in tech, or don’t think they can. But tech skills get you hired just about anywhere, NOT just “in tech.” it’s not just the software and mobile app startups that are searching for tech-savvy talent. Almost EVERY company needs these kind of skilled people. (Source)
