First Thanks to FreeCodeCamps and all the amazing communities around this project.
A month ago I started my first position as a front end Dev in a digital agency in London. It was actually quite quick for me to find this position. It took me around a month.
I have send around 120 applications. Met 4 recruiters. Got 4 tests. Got 6 phone interviews, 4 physical interviews with 6 compagnies.
I graduated in December from a master in Marketing.
I studied as well Graphic Design for a year between 2013 and 2014 where I learned a lot of HTML and CSS, so before starting on FCC I had already a good knowledge of this.
My path to a Frond End position
HTML and CSS: As I said, I learned about it when I studied graphic design for a year, I learned a lot about integration from Photoshop to HTML/CSS and responsive design. (Project done: at this time http://vincent-humeau.com/portfolio_le_bacille_damour.php )
Sass: This summer I started to learn about Sass, I wanted to challenge myself to learn something new and I realized after that that I wanted to pursue a career in this field. (Project done to master this subject: at this time http://vincent-humeau.com/portfolio_portfolio.php )
Bootstrap: In January I learned how to use bootstrap as many jobs were asking about it (Project done to master this subject: at this time http://vincent-humeau.com/portfolio_travel_log.php )
To get the job
So basically I have been practicing coding almost full time since December. From mid January I have been sending applications half of the day and the other half I have been working on the FCC projects. When I got my job I only did 3 of the intermediate Front End projects.
Today, I’m really happy with my career path. I’m still doing projects and courses on FCC and look forward to learning a lot of new things
