I'm learning to program from online classes but don't have any real world experience. Every "Junior" job on Indeed requires 2-4 years of experience. I'm a beginner but learning and eager to learn more. The programming "Bootcamps" are way too expensive for me and no guarantee of a job after. Can I volunteer to work for a company for free in exchange for some mentoring and real world experience? I figure in the startup world there are smart developers who need help but low on funds, and I can do the work for them in exchange for some mentoring. I don't know if this is a possibility to work for free for experience. I'm not in a university for college credit.
A large part of being a good web developer is teamwork. At the end of the day, employers want to be sure that you will work well with others and bring a positive attitude to the office.
Besides if you do have any questions give me a call: https://clarity.fm/joy-brotonath
