  • How can I get a job in Web Development?

    I have been teaching myself web development for about two years. I have a somewhat of a working knowledge of PHP, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. I have a small blog that I try to post tutorials about what I'm learning once or twice a month. Beyond doing what I am doing now, how can a land a job in web development?

    Thanks for being here your blog is awesome!

    Be sure to promote each post on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, DZone, EchoJS, and everywhere else. If you don't put yourself out there, you'll never be noticed. Outside of that, apply, even if you don't think you're qualified. Personality goes a long way. Lastly, contribute to open source projects -- recruiters see "contributor to ____" in your resume and they perk up quickly!
