After completing the front end track do you know enough to get a job as a front end developer?

So after you complete the track so you know enough to be able to make websites for a portfolio and get a job as a front end developer? I'm seeing a lot of these and was wondering if you'd be qualified.

I've completed the front-end track and I believe that I would be able to get a job as a front end developer. However, your portfolio is going to be the key. There is so much that goes into making a website and it takes a lot of knowledge and experience. Your next steps after completing the track would be to start building your portfolio and seeing what you can actually do.

I think it's important to note that completing the track should not be the primary chunk of your education. I feel it should probably be around 10% of what you're doing. In the other time, you should be reading blogs, playing with code, reading framework documentation and trying to understand it, etc. You want to grab as much information as you can.
