Transfer career from industrial robots to social/service robots?

Hi, I’m looking for a career change (you can look up my previous post if you want). As a person with mostly ME background, I figured out my best shot is to start with a firmware engineer job instead of a software engineer one. However, there’s not much development in social/service robots in my country, but we do have some industrial automation jobs here. How do you think if I want to transfer my career from industrial robots to social/service robots in the future, as a firmware engineer? From my understanding, as a firmware engineer, my skills will mostly be PLC, electronics, and C (and C++?).
