re: Great writeup! I'm currently looking to get a remote web dev job. My biggest challenge seems to be a disconnect between what I know (WordPress/PHP/...

Thank you! Yes, being hired as a developer is difficult and unfortunately, I don't have much advice here. I also know how to code but don't have the "chops" to be hired yet so am personally building my own projects while working in marketing. I agree that sometimes the requirements of developer jobs are at times too focused on specifics instead of the ability of the developer to solve problems.

What I have heard that has worked for some is to build something that is relevant to the company you want to work for. I've seen a couple stories of this happening and the developer getting hired by that company because they were so impressed.
