Getting your first Web Development job with no experience or degree [VIDEO]

In this video, I discuss things you can do to start landing interviews and get your first job as a frontend, backend or full-stack web developer.

As a self-thought developer, I talk about the things that I did, that took me from having no job to my first job to earning over €100,000 in 1 year. I'll also talk about different things you can do to boost your chances at landing a job faster. 🚀

This was really encouraging, thank you very much! You've hit the points I have been wondering about, such as - Am I ready yet? Is it OK to apply for jobs above my estimated skill level? What kind of projects should be in my portfolio? Thank you for the very valuable advice!
