**Updated for 2019**
I've updated this course to be more updated as technologies have changed over the last couple of years. The old course (based on Frontend Web Developer) is still available as a bonus module at the end (there's tonnes of great knowledge in the old course).
This course now includes the secret way to get a job interview without submitting a resume. It's not really a "secret" it's just a technique that nobody talks about — until now. It'll change the way you look for a job as a web developer!
*** If you're interested in becoming a web developer, this course IS for you! ***
This course is the result of a web development job study I did and I ended up getting 12 interviews in 12 weeks. Yes, I'm serious. Of those 12, most of them offered me a job and in the end I was able to pick which company I wanted to work for.
The goal was to learn what skills companies are actually looking for, and I found those... and much much more. I found a formula for getting interviews quickly.
I even had The City (that I live in) interview me. Twice!
Update: I'll teach you how to bypass submitting a resume to strangers, and how to get an interview with your dream company.
This course goes over everything I did, in a simple step-by-step guide. You'll learn:
