Hello. Please forgive me if this is in the wrong place.
I am what you would call an aspiring web developer. I have been self teaching for around six months and still have not found a solid path to follow. Six months sounds like a lot but realistically it has been a few solid weeks of learning since it is a side hobby that I hope will turn into my career.
My question is: How are web development jobs doing nowadays? For years I have heard how this technological boom will bring millions of jobs, but more recently I have noticed that they seem to be hard to come by for developers that I know and talk to. Did the boom bring too many developers? I live near a rather large city and I have heard that it’s hell to find a job doing something as a developer.
Is this crazy talk or should I just take up a damn trade? haha. I just graduated college last year doing computer sciences. I work in a grocery store. The job market around me is tough, but we are hoping to move very soon and possibly go back to college.
Is the Web Dev job market in a good enough state that I should risk more college(LOANS)?
Thanks for any advice…
Edit: thank you guys so much for the kind and informative replies. This sub is one hundred times nice than any of the other subs I have posted to about this. I will try to reply to you guys when I’m off work. Thanks!
