Just a little back story. I was truck driving, but have always been a techie. I decided to ditch the truck driving and focus on expanding my skills and trying to break into tech. The idea was to “just learn” web development and freelance, so I can work for myself, from home. In hindsight, that was quite the overly ambitious goal. I joined up with FCC in September. Previously, I had always been into computers but have only done things on codecademy briefly so I was quite new.
I don’t know if it’s web development per se, or more web design, and the pay is way low. Comparable to entry level call center work, but, it’s a start. And it’s paid experience doing web stuff, which is more than what I was expecting going into my interview. So, I’m looking at this as very valuable experience and hoping it’ll assist me in eventually landing a higher tier tech job in the future. Just wanted to share!
