Discussion on: A question on how to gain the experience needed for job entry.

The entry point is hard but I think the best thing to do is to put together a portfolio showing the skills you want to demonstrate, don't think too much about making perfect projects with 100% quality and all the features you can imagine, people interviewing you will most likely prefer a finished project.

The portfolio idea is mainly because a lot of people do bootcamps and tutorials nowadays but personally I find it more interesting what you have done with that knowledge on your own than if you have done that tutorial, bootcamp, or CS.

Also consider contributing to an open source project to test and learn team skills and get some real experience.

Good luck!
