if you wish, you can make website for me @ desertrose0601
Yes but… how do you GET those jobs? Do you approach the butcher and say,
“Hey I noticed you don’t have a website? Can I build you one?”
Very well said ! In a couple of minutes is explained the simple truth about
the programming and other professions…..
Coding is perfect for you!
Either way works. If you are looking to work for small business or go at it
as a freelancer, then formal education in not required. I’ve NEVER been
asked by clients or perspective clients if I had a degree.
you are welcome
I just realized I vbloged about this already …. oh well. Stef
If you are going out there as a contractor dealing with small and medium
business (that 80% of them) then you don’t need a degree. If you want to
work for big business, then a degree is handy. But, there is a growing
backlash with regards to higher education and the perceived worth of these
degrees so I think that even this will change over time. In the end,
experience is what your really need – so start building things.
Hmmm .. I can’t really put a time on that; I was building websites for my
export business and then found myself doing contract work as an independent
when I left that. I had job offers but I decided to tough it out and became
a contractor. You will get work once you get the skills. To get the skills
you need to build websites (even free ones,) … and soon enough you will
find the demand for your skills. … So it is less about time and more
about your level of skills. Stef
Could you tell me your opinion on wether or not you think that this career
field is ideal for someone who is an introvert, is not a “people’s-person”,
and loves to work alone and travel?
Just curious what are your views on self taught vs formal education when it
comes to web programming, also are certificates really worthless in the web
web development would be perfect. design, it depends. tip: if this person
is introvert but makes great designs, he/she should try a premium selling
market of designs and themes, for example themeforest [dot] net
How long did it take you to get your first full time Job?
