Hi everyone, my name is Jacobo, I’m 19 years old and I’m from Venezuela. I am learning web development, (my English is elementary).
With the knowledge I have learned during this journey, I believe that I have the bases and could achieve great things.
I wanted to consult you and ask for your support if, based on my level, I could apply for better jobs and where I could find them …
I am currently working as IT in a digital marketing agency, design, web development in Panama (Yes, I thought my dream would come true) but they are only paying me $100 per month (it will be $1.200 per year ). Is it too little to take maintenance of web pages of several clients? all hosted on the Shopify platform.
What I do:
Responsible for the web pages, managing the Shopify platform, modifying the template code to improve details or changes that the client needs (modify the template), inventory management, etc.
The truth is that I do not have anyone to share my fears or doubts, I hope the community can help me or help me get a better job where I can learn better web development with a team. Since my boss does not value the knowledge.
Will I pass my CodePen and Github account so that you can evaluate what I have learned, and tell me if I have the level to earn more than $ 100 per month? I feel that I need to change jobs, but I do not know where, or how.
I await your response, sometimes I enter into crisis and I think it is time to share my story with you.
The most shocking thing is that I earn more than my mother. And one of the reasons why I want to get a better job is to help my family doing what I like! every day I study on my own to be a better web developer.
