I have a BSc in web development but did not code in years. Now I am trying to get back into web development as my career as a technical consultant stopped, and the opportunities I currently have are only low-paying jobs.
My knowledge from my education was orientated toward full-stack web development, Vue.js, and Laravel among many other things. Currently, I am lost, I do not know what to focus on, or what should be my goal/what position I should aim for.
I would love to work back end, on challenging projects, keeping in my security, data transfer, etc. Doing something I feel like is very important, but I think that in order to get there it takes 10 years of experience.
So I will start from the beginning with HTML, CSS, JS… I will try to get a customer support job, so I can pay my bills and mortgage while I learn front end. When I get a junior front-end job, I will try to learn the back end again, so that I can get a full-stack job. That is in case I do not decide to stay in the front end, and specialize in mobile development or something else.
I am asking for any advice, suggestions, tips, or maybe even help with getting an internship, I had a 6 month internship in PHP but it stopped when the virus hit, and I got discouraged after that. My dad died, and I could not find a job, needed the money, so I accepted a technical consultant job and worked in that position for almost 3 years.
Now I am at 0 again, with no money left with bills and mortgage, can not find a technical consultant job, and without enough knowledge for a web development job.
