Great post!

One comment about the

Browse through job listings ๐Ÿ”

I think this is a good starting point but it can also misguide you really badly.
Sometimes the job listings are written by non-technical people who can't distinguish a Pokemon name from a coding language/framework. Or maybe the company has listed all the technologies they know even though it's not really relevant to already master it before applying for the job.

But I agree - put yourself out there, get to know people in the field and make a hell of a LinkedIn profile! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Hahahaha, good point! This could indeed misguide newbies, yet it presents an opportunity for the newbie to do their own research and learn to read between the lines ๐Ÿค” After all, job listings should not be treated as a single source of truth, haha ๐Ÿ˜…

Thanks for adding to the conversation @tiina ! Awesome insights as usual ๐Ÿ˜
