How I landed 2 part-time dev jobs
If you don't want to read my 15 points, 
here are some insights I learned along the way.

It takes times. 
Review my timeline.
Face-to-face networking is super-effective, at least, in my case.
I love education. 
I would not be here without it.
I have not completed the FCC front-end certificate. 
I will eventually finish it.
I have not completed FEND.
I most likely won't complete it.

As I am writing this, I am physically and mentally exhausted.
I'll come back in 12-48 hours and answer questions.

Don't give up. I didn't.

Here’s a quick rundown of my journey.

Thank you everyone and @QuincyLarson! :smiley:

Is it possible to get an entry level remote position?

Awesome! Congratulations on your roles. And congratulations on winning the scholarship. It sounds like you’ve been patiently building your skills over the past few years.

You’ve used a lot of different resources. If you have time, you should review some of them over in - I a lot of us would benefit from knowing the strengths and weaknesses of these various programs and resources.


Thank you, @QuincyLarson!

I’ll set aside some time to do some reviews.

I clicked on the link and it said that the page does not exist.

I was just about to ask about that. I think he meant to link: … he did say reviews :stuck_out_tongue: haha, seems like a typo.
