Hi Johnathan,

Thanks for reaching out! As it seems you're just getting started, I would recommend finishing up both the front-end web development and iOS development tracks to familiarize yourself with each and determine which you prefer. In going though the tracks, you'll build up essential job-ready skills, as well as build a work portfolio. From there, I would round out your classes with our soft skills, and continue building your portfolio with free or freelance work for friends and local businesses. You can always reach out to me at kristen@teamtreehouse.com for more advice or to help aid in your search!

Kristen
