Hey guys,

Sorry for the repost, I originally posted in the wrong forum. But anyways, I’ve been learning front end development for the past year and a half or so. FCC has been a major part in my advancement of my knowledge. Based on my Github and portfolio of projects, do you guys think employers would view me as employable for a junior position?

I say try to do 1 or 2 real websites for a couple charities/businesses/friends/etc. This will help you get used to the workflow of making a site and also it will teach you the hosting side of putting up a live website. I made a site for my cousin’s business and it helped me get an idea of how to work with hosting sites and cPanel and actually put a live site up. It helped me learn a lot.

I say do 1 or 2 real sites and then start applying/studying for interviews.

I also recommend You Don’t Know JS. I’ve been reading it and it’s teaching me a lot about javascript and I think it would be really useful to read before interviewing.

Just looked at your site on my Iphone. Responsive design looks good. Just a pointer, the pomodoro clock project isn’t centered properly.

Thanks @Nicknyr! Good call on building a real site. I will look into that.

BTW, when you say my pomodoro clock isn’t centered, do you mean when viewing it in mobile devices?


#8

When viewed on my iPhone the clock is slightly right of center.

Looks good man. Keep up the good job. I like how you made specific paths to your project work rather than just linking to CodePen (I think I may steal that idea from you :wink: ).

Good luck!
