Job searching?

How many here have been able to land jobs shortly after finishing their respected courses? how long did it take?

College courses, yes. Did 2 years in college in CS when the pandemic hit and got something right out of it.

Sorry, I mean’t the courses from codecademy, Like front end web dev, Back end etc …

You probably need a lot of portfolio building and additional coursework to be in shape then! It depends how much of that you’re doing on top of the codecademy courses. I personally sped through the CS course in a month when I used codecademy and it was only a drop of water in the bucket of what I needed to be to be job ready.


I was in college studying pharmacy when the pandemic hit. I found a job at an agency that specializes in SEO and web development. Initially, I started working with SEO, but then I discovered Codecademy and began my journey into frontend development. Codecademy was incredibly helpful, and today I am a frontend developer at the same agency.
