I started applying to jobs in frontend and full stack development like a month before lockdown started. I was about to get an interview for an internship but that closed along with other opportunities as lockdown happened. I recently applied for this company called code your future and they seem really great, their work, vision and guidance for their fellow students new to web development.
I am currently volunteering as a full stack mentor but it’s still in the beginning stages where they are learning the basics.
I have 1.5 years experience in web development. I am an aspiring full stack developer with about 4 good projects so far in my portfolio. I don’t have any certificates. I’m from Cape Town. Most of the time jobs require certificate or degree.
My question is how much value will this volunteering as a coding mentor be on my resume?
Thanks for all valuable feedback. Much appreciated.
