Hi everyone! First post here hehe.
My name is Ja’lah. I’m currently an undergraduate pursuing a Computer Science degree. I have 5 classes left for my bachelors career (2 classes being electives, and 3 pertaining to CS) and I do not feel ready to enter the field. So far my classes have only grazed over C++, Java and Python. I know only those basic languages. I feel that I won’t be ready for the real world once I graduate, and that my degree will be for nothing.
I like to code a lot, mostly problem solving or deep diving when given a subject and task, but when it comes to creating an idea from scratch, I get unmotivated. I’m not sure if Software Development, or Web Development is for me (although I’m still on the fence about it, I’m still doing research on what it is like day-to-day) so I’ve considered getting into Data Analysis and have started that career path in codecademy as well. I’m hoping that this subject is something that I could see myself doing full-time, or else I’m not sure where I will go going forward.
I feel that time is running out for me. The pressure of getting into work in my field of choice is weighing heavy on me. I really want to get an internship or job related to light coding so I can feel out what it’s like, but even after going through 4 years of college, I still don’t feel ready.
Does anyone have any advice on where I should go from here?
