re: Transitioning Into Your First Junior Developer Role VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Perhaps an unpopular opinion, and I understand why people do this, but once you get your first developer job, drop the "junior." You're a developer, be confident! It might help some of the impostor syndrome!

 

I think it's important to understand that you have a lot to learn - years worth of learning!

But yes, as a tactical move, speaking and presenting yourself as a "developer" vs. "junior developer" can help in marketing yourself and even positioning yourself confidently 😊

 

I don't think anyone new to having a career in development goes in thinking they are expert, but keeping the "junior" mindset does seem like it could be a little self-defeating in wanting to grow and learn.
