It all started in July 2018 when I signed up on the AngelList platform, everything seemed great as i got my first internship at 16 years old. It was an unpaid internship but it didn't bother me, I already had some previous freelance projects and the interview wasn't that hard as the interviewer was friendly.
First signs of worry
I learnt a lot, and i still am learning at my internship but recently I started to think of what should I do after this internship(which will end in December). The perfect scenario would be to land a job as a Junior Front end Developer but I'm getting discouraged a bit.
I'm not the greatest of the developers out there, I'm still a beginner/intermediate user of Vue and I still need to practice my algorithms and UI/UX principles.
I had this idea in mind that once I'm in the industry it will be easy to get further jobs but it doesn't seem like it to me now. The interview for the internship wasn't that hard, mostly because it is an unpaid internship and I'm thinking that the next job interviewers(if i get to the interviewing process in the first place) won't hire a kid that barely has any experience as their developer.
What should I do?
What are the chances that after this internship I'll get a job, I'm constantly learning every day and I won't stop anytime soon, I saw that a lot of jobs require React and I'm pointing my eyes towards learning that in weekends when I have time and after the end of this internship but I'm still worried that I won't make it.
I want to further increase my portofolio, currently I have a few SPAs and a few html/css only pages but I want to have ~5 projects made with Vue and React that I will be able to proudly showcase to any potential interviewer.
What piece of advice would you give to me so that I'll make it as an internship, or at least make me a confident and overall better developer?
