Hello! As I said, I almost did that. So, what I think I should do next: I need a real experience, make real websites with sliders,animation effects etc…
Because for an employer it doesn’t matter how many certificates you have or how many challenges you have gone through, there’re 2 things which matter - Can you make websites or not? How many technologies (js,jquery,sass etc) and programs(Photoshop,WordPress,Sketch etc)can you use? Do you think I’m right?
So after finishing the certification, I want to make a landing page from scratch(from psd to html/css then to wordpress) for my friend, she’s a businesswoman. I want to learn how to make sliders,pop up windows and galleries on my own, I mean without using built-in WordPress plugins for the website, I want to improve my HTML and CSS skills, and my main goal is to make a responsive website for all devices.
Then, I want to make about 10-15 websites for my portfolio page and register on LinkedIn and stuff like that to start looking for a junior front-end developer vacancy.
I know that I can mistake, don’t judge too strictly, I just want to get feedback, what do you think about all this? Am I going in the right direction and what shall I add(programming languages,skills,best places to find the job)?.
P.S. I have also plans for back-end, but I want to become a front-end developer first.
