I live in Houston Texas and I am about to get my associate degree in CS by the summer. I am also on my way to get my FrontEnd certificate, How can I find a job with both of these, and what should i look for? most of the jobs I see for FrontEnd developer are requiring Bachelor Degree as minimum with many years of experience, any advices?
Yeah, apply anyway! If you have a good portfolio, show enthusiasm and a willingness to learn, someone might still give you a shot. Smart employers are realising that years of experience and credentials and qualifications don’t mean that you’ll be a productive employee. What really matters is that you can get things done, and a track record of getting things done is the best evidence you can provide. If you need more good stuff in your portfolio (and almost everyone does) then take on a few side projects. Approach some charities or non-profits and see if they need help. Create a website for your local community.
