Yeah definitely. What kind of portfolio do you recommend a junior should build? like open source projects? or a youtube channel talking about dev?

Create github repository and create few basic projects in it. For Frontend/Fullstack position create apps like:

  • ToDo list
  • Github Users Viewer
  • Counter etc.

i.e. for Junior Frontend/React dev it would be nice to show (using those projects) that you know/can use:

  • React Hooks or LifeCycle methods
  • Redux
  • CSS
  • make API call
