General Question about Full Stack Developers

Hello Treehouse! So I've been doing the front end track and it' been going great. I'm considering signing up for the Full Stack Development tech degree for more hands on learning and be job ready sooner.

 Are there junior developer/entry level jobs for full stack? Will this tech degree make me entry level ready with no prior experience? Any advice and thoughts would be awesome! Thanks

Hi there! Let me take a stab at your questions:

  1. Are there junior developer/entry-level jobs for full-stack? -> There are a lot of developer jobs out there, but it's best to gauge by checking 'web developer' or 'junior developer' in your local area to see what the job market looks like.

  2. Will this tech degree make me entry-level-ready with no prior experience? -> Totally! That's the goal of our Techdegrees. To get you job-ready and give you a portfolio of projects to show off your hard work.

  3. Advice -> Definitely take advantage of Slack and office hours in the Techdegree. Most graduates say that Slack was what made the Techdegree worth it.
