I’ve been working pretty consistently on learning more than just html and css since September 2018. Along the way, I learned enough about node.js and express to get an api running and am currently building a portfolio project with the MERN stack (without the R, need to learn that next).
Thing is, There are a lot of job postings in my area (live around Montreal) but all of them mention either the need to have anything between 1-7 years of work experience, technologies I have never used (Angular, Webpack, Docker… etc) or even entirely different languages (PHP). I have quite a bit of experience in C# so php shouldn’t be that hard to learn but it feels like the more I learn to get a job, the more I need to learn to get a job and that’s excluding all those “You need a computer science degree” postings.
What exactly should I do ? Learn React, get a good grip on it and start applying for jobs even though I don’t have a lot of experience with it or should I keep learning new stuff like Angular or even php ? Can I apply on a job asking for php if all I know about is JS ? Do you really need to know about every single tech mentioned in the postings ?
So many questions I know. I really want to get a job in development but it seems to be the more I climb the taller the mountain seems to be.
