Web Developer Advice

Q: What is it like working as a Web Developer?

Web Developer in Los Angeles:
"Avoid Old Practices."
If I walked into a meeting with a client for filming an event ten years ago and told them I'd be using an EX1, they'd say "of course you are." If I did that today, I'd be laughed out of the room. In web development, it's very common for people to be learning and professionally using techniques that were relevant a decade ago, and everything in-between. If you're using Wordpress, PHP, cPanel, you're wasting your time. Study Dart, Node, static site generation, cloud services.

Web Developer in Valencia:
"Open Mind, Open Door."
In a large corporate environment, be prepared to have technologies placed on your lap that may not necessarily have been the solution you would have chosen. Hence, the title open mind, open door. Several years ago, I worked with a boss who, when change was forced upon us, would say "...you came here looking for work, you'll leave here looking for work." Welcome change and the challenges that it will bring.

"Good things come to those who persevere."
It can be a challenge to get a job in this field as there is quite a saturation of people working in this industry. But if you continue to persevere and work hard to attain your goals, you will end up meeting them. Tweaking and honing your skills as well as tweaking and honing your resume and cover letters are key to getting that first interview. Always have peer review, and if all else fails ask the internet for help. If you know where to look and how to look, you can get great information on how to work toward getting that job of your dreams.
