What's the one thing you would do differently if you could travel back in time to where you started your career / coding journey?

As a self-taught web developer, at some point during my coding journey, I got distracted and switched to a different language just out of curiosity. (switch from JavaScript to Python). Three months later, I realized that Python or Data science isn't really my thing. (I definitely see the beauty and power of Python!) However, I love JavaScript or Front-end web development more than extracting insights from data set. So for me, I would definitely tell myself to FOCUS on one language if I could travel back in time. 1. What about you? 2. What kind of advice would you give yourself if life can rewind and replay? I'm asking this question because it allows me learn valuable lessons / insights from others' story! (If you don't mind sharing!) As always, Thank you for your time in reading this post and sharing your story! I wish you all the best & take care of yourself! #career #business #coding #professional #timeTravel #Focus #programming #webdevelopment #python #javascript #careerguidance #education #Learning #careeradvice #careerchoices #technology

How do you overcome imposter syndrome?

As a self-taught web developer, I often wonder whether I am competent enough to apply for web developer jobs that typically require a degree in Computer Science & require 2+ years (or more) of relevant work experiences for junior web developer position. The requirement section in the job post seems to expect A LOT from the candidates. Some front-end developer positions also require candidates to know back-end technology/languages. Some job posts simply list out all the preferred skills they are looking for in a candidate. When I look at the job description, it just seems like I can never meet all of their requirements. Most likely, I only meet 50% ~60% of the requirements. While I'm confident about my ability to pick up things quickly, many companies want to hire experienced people :( 1. What's your career advice? 2. What would you do if you were in my shoes? 3. If you are a Hiring Manager / Engineering Team Lead, how much weight would you put on a candidates' soft skills during the interview? Would soft skills trump the technical skills in your hiring decisions? Candidate A: Technical skills(85%) + soft skills (60%) Candidate B: Technical skills (70%) + soft skills (75%) Thank you for your time to read my post & your willingness to help out a Web Dev Ninja -to-be All the best & Take Care! :)) #JULY20 #career #careerAdvice #technology #coding #interview-prep #impostersyndrome #WebDevelopment #technicalSkills #softSkills #HR #humanresource #jobpost

What are the usual degree requirements of a Web Designer and Developer

I am starting school at a local community college this fall, and after long deliberation, have decided that I want to do web design/development, since I have taken both AP Art and AP Computer Science Principles, and they both ended up being two of my favorite classes, and have given me enough design and code experience to make me feel comfortable enough to want to pursue it as a career. I've decided I want to first off, start with an associates degree, as my college offers an AAAS in Graphics/Web Development. It offers two tracks for the degree, and I have actually decided to take both tracks and some extra Java classes since I have all of my general education requirements completed from AP courses. All around, the program itself along with the extra classes I plan to take I feel will be great in preparing me for a job with just an associates degree. BUT- I've done a lot of "job research" (I've googled web designer and web developer jobs) and I feel as if a lot of them require a bachelors degree in either computer science or graphic design. I don't really know if I want to go for a full-blown bachelors, considering I want to go into as little student debt as possible, and being financially independent of my parents is a really big goal for me Will an associates degree prepare me fully for a web design/development job? Will there be jobs for me, if I only pursue an associates? Also, any other career advice that is related would be super helpful. #graphic-design #college #webdesign #webdeveloper #webdevelopment #informationsystems #design #web-design #web-designer #associates-degree #design #graphic-design
