Hi, I need advice on my job hunt.
I have recently finished school this week and for the past year, I have learned to programme doing my own time on/off.
Time management has been an issue for me, so I struggled juggling school and learning to code doing my own free time, nevertheless, I had managed to cough up a portfolio which highlights some projects I have made with a mini portfolio to showcase this. https://balancedsan.github.io/myportfolio/
I am still not comfortable for applying for jobs since I only know the basics HTML/CSS/js so I went on to apply for a company Bootcamp last month which is a 3 months full-time coding Bootcamp starting from May to August, the stack thought is MERN stack. I got accepted into their program and I have a 1-month gap before the program starts.
So aside from practicing and building more projects doing my own free time, I am in a dilemma if I should start applying for jobs before my coding camp starts doing this 1-month time frame. There is tech a job fair next week (29 April) and I wanted to go to companies to show what I have currently and ask if we could keep in contact till I finish the coding boot camp.
But I feel unsure because I only have the basics HTML/CSS/js, so I don’t feel confident about my own abilities since I don’t have most of the prerequisite listed by a company job ad in the career fair (react or node etc), and I do not know how they will react if I tell them about the Bootcamp, because they might think badly about it.
Should I go ahead and look for companies before my Bootcamp starts or should I be more patient and build more projects and confidence before applying. Hope to seek some advice
