Helpful tips on how to get a job with entry-level tech skills?

Hello! Does anyone else feel it is impossible to enter the field of tech because there seems to be an endless list of concepts to learn? I completed the entire front-end development track here at treehouse and I still don't feel like my skill set matches what is desired by the majority of employers on job search engines like indeed.com, glassdoor or google jobs.

I set out on this tech path full of excitement but now after completing the front-end track and even studying with other courses on udemy.com, I feel a bit lost and disillusioned....I feel can never learn enough to apply for even the most entry-level job!

Anyone else out there feeling the same? Or does anyone else have tips on breaking into the tech industry as a beginner? I'd love to be proved wrong here so any tips or advice is welcome! Thanks!
