No problem! I was a university student studying business and working as a marketing assistant before becoming a developer. I searched job boards like Seek for opportunities, and found the listing for my first job there. I was very underqualifued, but decided to just give it a go and apply, and thankfully it worked out :D

Sounds great!

One more question (you shouldn’t have offered me to ask ;) ):
What’s the atmosphere in a front end developer job like?
Is it more relaxed or stressful?

Haha all good 😅 it really depends on the company you work with. Every company will have a different culture and process of working. For example my first job was at an agency where the pace and stress levels varied a lot depending on deadlines and the amount of work we had coming in. Where as my current job is a lot more level in terms of stress/work load because it is an internal product and we focus mostly on one or two releases at a time :)
