What’s some advice you’d give someone starting in web? What was your journey / the start of your career like? How do you progress?
I’ve been studying web stuff since I was 15 (I’m not too far off 21 now). I did IT and Computer Science at GCSE (high school), I skipped the second year of my web dev college course because I’d already taught myself (and taught one of my tutors a couple of things) and then did design and FED at the college’s university centre.
I never managed to get a job in web. I was applying for junior and graduate level marketing, design and front end development roles for 8 months after leaving uni. I was (and still am) volunteering my design skills with my local civic society. In December, I was offered a job in digital skills, teaching others how to use certain software.
This might belong in Questions, but I wanted to start a larger discussion for other people like me who haven’t yet gotten in to the industry. So, how did you start your career?
