Which one to choose to land a a Jr Developer Job

Anyone who could chime in would be great! So I have been doing some coding via Treehouse and other resources but at this point I am thinking about really cranking up and possibly taking a online bootcamp (Thinkful, bloc.io) in order to look to land a Jr developer job. I have about 3-4 months to be able to dedicate myself fully in order to land a job. If you would have to recommend which language (s) could take the least amount of time to learn and is also in demand which would you recommend. I enjoy coding a lot, and ultimately I want to do it because I love it but at the same time I have bills to pay(don't we all!). So my goal is to get a job ASAP and then really take my time learning a language that I truly love. I could do Front/Back End. Thanks everyone.

You'd be best following the "Front-end Web Development" Track here on Treehouse, which goes through the basic languages and skills needed to land a Junior Web Developer position: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Sass, and Git. You can even take it a step further and complete the Rails Development Track for some back-end experience in Ruby on Rails.
