As I'm still early in my learning here, I'm sure others can answers better than this, but I know that people have gotten jobs after only partially completing the Front End Dev track. Why? Usually, it's because they improved so much over that short period, made a portfolio and nailed an interview after applying a bunch. So, knowing that I think it's much more important to showcase what you can do for an employer with the skills you've learned rather than relying on the lessons themselves to get you a foot in the door. Treehouse is a tool, but it still takes some skill to use the tools given to you and even more skill to know when to use certain skills, especially when programming (like javascript). So, if you're wondering if you can get a job with the things you learn here, the answer is yes, but it's up to the individual to make their own path with it.
