Hi there! Speaking from personal experience. I’m in the exact same boat. Since I’m also a university student freelancing has been twice as difficult for me, but I suggest you do “easy” freelance work. I started out with helping people setup their Wordpress sites. Wordpress is a very easy platform for people like us, not so much the general public. So if people are willing to pay you to install and implement some themes and plugins into their platform, do so! Then as you’re doing so, try to see the code behind some of the plugins or pages, and if your customer wants a very specific quality (like a carousel, or extra sidebar) try to see whether you can actually code it into the page using HTML/CSS rather than just installing a plugin. If it looks good, great! If not, you can still save yourself with that plugin and customize it later.
Alright thanks a lot for your support and i definitely agree with the online marketing thing! Also besides asking around local business I would also like to look for easy tasks online so do you think you can suggest me some places where i can look for some small easy (its okay if it pays less) jobs i can look for online?
craigslist is a great place to advertise your abilities.
If you’re serious about front end/full stack development, go MERN or MEAN. (Mongodb, Express, reactjs/angular, node js)
Use hackreactor to get your skills up to par.
You can study on video reviews, everything is explained clearly there. I studied so, later I bought a book and worked on it.
