Hi Eriko,

I think your portfolio site looks great! Good luck on your job search on full stack dev. I think stack overflow has plenty of job opening. How’s job search for you?

By this time, I think you can:

  1. go full force on job search as full stack developer
  2. see if you can find some freelance gig online or in your local community
  3. if you want to continue to build on your portfolio, you can build a full stack app, both frontend and backend, and deploy it out in a cloud server (or serverless service). Can check online about building a hackernews full stack app for practice.

p.s) On #3, I did it myself at here. The backend is put in a heroku free dyno. So the 1st time you visit it, expect 5-10 sec for the backend to be awake.

All the best to your future.

Thanks for the feedback! I didn’t think about that and I will consider about it :slight_smile:

Thank you for catching it! I completely forgot to do that!

Thanks for the great advice! I just started job hunting so I will see how it goes. I am planning to put this on server and yes, I will make apps while applying for new jobs :smile: thank you!

Very nice work, Eriko! Love the color transitions. I also wanted to click the “Let’s work together” at the bottom :slight_smile:

I love your portfolio b/c it looks professional but I have a question: is it okay not to pass all the tests to get a certificate? I just ran the javascript test on your portfolio and it passed 4 out of 12 or something.

Really amazing portfolio. Background color change while scrolling is very effective and I really like the layout of your portfolio. Since I am still learning web development, your work inspired me lot.

Thank you for your feedback! I am assuming you are talking about the wider screen version (I made this site for 3 different screen sizes) since there is no contact info under “Let’s work together”? I will think about it and make a change:+1:

Thank you! I did my best to make it look professional. The reason why this is not passing the test is because this is not for FCC test but for my job hunting. I do think you will need to pass all the tests to get a certificate. If you are interested in, here is my portfolio that I created 3 months ago for FCC test: https://codepen.io/eriko87/full/zQWbrE.

Thank you very much for your kind support!

Thank you! I spent 40 hours a week for 3 months. I also took some udemy and cousera courses, so it took me about 400 hours to complete everything.

After reading your response I agree this is what I need to do get focus on what I want in life , I’ve been spending all my time working but always wishing to get my first job as a web developer , so I think the best way out would be get a casual job fee days a week enough for paying bills and dedicate my time to web development.
Thanks a lot

Now, I get it :slight_smile: I’m planning to use wordpress or bootstrap themes to build my portfolio for job hunt. do you think it’s okay to do that? I mean, the code of the portfolio doesn’t really belong to me but the projects in it do.

40 hours a week? Wow, that’s almost 6 hours a day. Were you on holiday when you did this? How did you make the time?

Leaving my full time job definitely gave me time and helped me focus on studying but also put me under a lot of stress (in a good way for me). Good luck on your study and hope you can get your dream job!
