Hi there! Thought I would share my two cents here but I am sure the CC team will chime in. Getting a degree does not ensure that you will get a job. It just makes it easier to apply for jobs to companies who want to see that you have certain credentials. At the end of the day, you need to learn how to sell yourself to companies when you pitch your services to them. Even though you will be an employee, you still need to see yourself as a service vendor which means you need to learn how to position yourself the right way so that the company you want to work for will want to hire you.

Step 1 - Create a list of companies you want to work for

Step 2 - Learn what they want from developers. What do they look for?

Step 3 - Position yourself in a way where they will want you.

Good luck out there!
