How I Got My Dream Job (with resources) UPDATE

Hi Always want to get a chance to show my appreciation to you.

For providing such a great platform to us and link each of us up.

In fact , our Guangzhou FCC site will start to held a coffee and code activity next Month and I am one of the helper.

Thanks again. Have a good day.


I’ve enjoyed reading your post. Interesting stuff.

Thanks for your kind words, Cherry! I am thrilled to hear that you’re helping other campers in Guangzhou. I have fond memories of Guangzhou (I lived there for a couple years) and hope to attend one of your events next time I’m in the area. Where do you all organize? On WeChat?

Colt Steele’s course is ‘amazing’ and I have nothing but nice things to say about that! Great read!

Awesome - thanks for such a great post!

Sorry about the absence, totally forgot to post it on the FCC medium. Got around to updating it :slight_smile:

@Munsterberg thanks for sharing that great story. please I want to ask: my english is good but still not perfect. is this a problem to make interview or to work remotely or even freelancing?

I would say it depends on where you’re looking to work. If you’re planning to work remotely in the US or Canada, I would try to improve your english as much as possible. Where I worked we had in-house and remote devs, all the remote workers were native english speakers. Just remember it never hurts to apply to jobs, you gain a lot of experience and insight.

thanks so much for your reply

Thanks for sharing such a motivational story! Hope, one day I can share mine after getting my first developer job. And could you please give links for Stephen Grider’s react courses on Udemy?

Check out the updated medium post! It has more resources and the links to each :slight_smile:

Thank you for sharing your experience. It is inspiring to read about someone breaking in and landing their first developer job. As a middle-aged career changer who fell into the tech field after years of unemployment during the Great Recession & then bouncing from one temp gig to the next with no real career direction, I am very hopeful that I have finally found my calling in programming. And reading about success stories like yours is motivating as I am on my journey. Thank you for sharing your learning tips too :slight_smile:

My pleasure! Glad to hear you’ve found your passion. When you land a gig in programming you should write a success story as well, I’d love to read it, especially because of your backstory. If you have any questions or need advice, don’t hesitate to reach out :slight_smile:

Thank you - very kind of you :sunny:

Very inspiring story. thanks for the tips and inspiration.

You really should also share this on Medium in a blog. I think it would be extremely beneficial for others (like us) who are learning to code and hope to land a “dream job” one day. Thanks!

I’ve been learning web development on and off for nearly 2 years. I was 21 and looking for a career path, all my friends were in college/uni, and I needed another way to spend my time than playing video games in my undies (now I’m attending meetings and programming in my undies). I applied for uni and got accepted as a Psychology major. Hated it. Now let me preface by saying I’ve always had a knack for computers, I mean I did grow up with them after all. A few major changes later, and I found myself in Computer Science.

Thank you for sharing your story. I’ve been studying Web development on and off for 2 years. But now that I’ve just graduated from college with an AAS degree, I think that I need to get serious about this. Thank you again for your inspiring story.

this is amazing, I really am inspired by your story and drive. I was about to go out and drink with friends but after reading this, it doesn’t hurt to drop the going out part and stick to coding tonight lol
