Hi, I have some newbie questions and hoping to get insights.
First of all, this will be a little bit long but I’m really grateful for your time even just for reading it.
So I’m building a personal portfolio website right now, and I’m planning to use it to find a job.
I don’t have work experience in IT so I’m not sure the dos and don’ts.
I saw some people will say that they are an aspiring front-end developer, etc. so my question is should I write that based on the job position that I after or my skills?
At my previous workplace, I built a company website for them using WordPress, so basically I self-taught myself to build a theme using PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, some JS and jQuery with my very limited knowledge. Nowadays, I’m in love with JS and the frontend frameworks. My question is how do I know if my knowledge or skills is enough to call myself a full-stack or frontend developer?
*Note: my previous job is not IT related and I don’t have work experience related to IT. So I did that because I want to use what I’ve learned.
As I mentioned above I have built a website before so I’m planning to add it to my portfolio, but later on the company website is altered after I stop working there, so is it still usable?
Is it okay or recommended to put freeCodeCamp front end development projects to the portfolio? because I only have a couple of project that I can put into my portfolio aside from freeCodeCamp projects.
I’d like to build more projects for my portfolio but I’m racing with time to get a job.
Any thoughts and feedback is very well appreciated!
