Hello fellow enthusiasts of Computer Science!
The internet has grown exponentially since the beginnings of the 20th century, due to this substantial increase everyone uses the internet, naturally this creates a huge amount of
Web Developing jobs. Nowadays, web development has become one of the
most attractive best-paid career choices in the modern world. What these people do is write lines of complicated code using a variety of languages, its a quite difficult job because you have to know understand a language such as English and translate it into a language that a computer understands. These workers take a lot of time and effort and requires an
intricate understanding of a variety of different programming languages and how they are used. Furthermore different types of developers specialize in different areas which we will talk to a further extent later on. The possibly best way to start in this new world would be obviously a professional career in college, however thanks to internet and many new platforms developed you can learn most aspects in online courses. You would like to familiarize yourself with the fundamentals of everything, this seems overwhelming but not to worry many things tie together. In essence I want to promote the idea that if committed any one of you can earn a three digit figure income with hard work and dedication, and although it sounds like a cliche trust me and the process it works.

critical. A front end developer are the once that say what should i display in the website? This is where things get intresting and areas were

Lets talk more about what to do once you have the knowledge and practice down.
Getting the Interview
What if you don’t have enough experience? Most people don’t love resumes, however without a resume you cant get an interview. And in order to create a good resume you need to put something on it to show you have great experience. I understand that though you may not have any experience since your just getting started but I have a solution, right now it seems like you may have no hope since your just a beginner without work experience. Experience doesn’t come just from working at a company, there are many ways that your can demonstrate experience without a past job. Here are the things I suggest you do to get that interview.
|Getting the interview requirements||What about them|
|GitHub||Good Profile with almost daily use|
|Website||Simple Website putting important information about yourself|
|1-2 Big Projects||Shows Complex understanding important to make stand out|
|Blog||Good to show you are in contact frequently with computer science world/problems|
A good tip is that you don’t want to go into that job that you know everything about already, you do not want to do things which you already mastered. What you should try to do is get a job where you know the area but not perfectly to then perfect it and move on to a higher position, like this continuously.
Finally here are a few different
