Don’t worry about it. When you apply for a job you can choose to give the employer your GitHub information which will allow them to see your history. Just find an open source project that is something you use yourself (ahem - Free Code Camp) and make what contributions you can. As your ability and your familiarity with the project improve, you’ll tackle increasingly complex issues. Do the work for its own sake.
