What kind of projects can someone work on to get considered for a job

 

Hi Vincent, thanks for the question!

I've already answered this to Kirsty's question, but the general gist of it is this: build a medium to large scale project rather than focusing on small code snippets.

For example, a "React Calculator" only displays that you can follow an online tutorial and that you have isolated knowledge of a few concepts.

Whereas writing your own "Basic Blogging platform using React + PHP" (these are example frameworks, it can be any of your choice) will give a much stronger impressive because it shows you can build a cohesive application.

The larger the scale of the application, the more it will boost your chances at being considered for a job.

Hope that helps!
