Actually two, one part time, one full time. A wordpress customer support and a html css developer.
Honestly, I haven’t finished Udacity CS101 & I only finished the first certificate in CSS. however, I did side projects (python and html, css,js) that made me put Udacity and FCC on the back burner.
It’s a start up so I am not expecting that it will pay well but work is nice. However, I’m not out of the woods yet, 1st month is probationary period. I hope I get regularized.
here’s some from me:
- startups will be the one to most likely hire you they do not pay much (understandable) BUT they will open doors for you unlike a stable company where it’s much much harder to get into. that way you can gain actual experience
- build your own “startup” it only cost $9 a year on dot com domain + 8$ per year on very cheap host. cloud flare is free. you may want to use a php web framework and/or a cms since most shared hosts support it unlike python web frameworks.
- do side projects
- don’t quit your stable job yet, dunno about you but if you got a job with a light work load, don’t quit it yet. you need a source of income to pay the bills ya know. it’s a different story if your current job’s work load is so heavy, may want to find another since it’s hard to balance coding with a regular job with a heavy work load.
- develop a work ethic, i guess? self starting, easily grasp what to do - i think are the soft skills you’ll mostly use.
- find sources to ask for help, stackexchange, etc.
there’s hope, good luck.
