How do I get internship as a Web Developer?
Harrison Reid, founder of Ippo.io emphasises building a portfolio of your projects. Even if it is basic – just get into the habit of adding all your pages on it. He recommends to learn by building. Regardless, of the certifications and tutorials you complete there is no substitute to getting your hands dirty. Start working on your personal website if nothing else. He then goes on to say learn in public. We think this is one of his best recommendations – document everything you are learning in a blog. This way others can help you and it will remain as a journal of how you have grown in skill over time. On social handles follow other developers and be a part of the communication. Harrison’s final advice is to start preparing for interviews. Depending on the company you want to intern for the interviews will vary. Many company just look for very basic information while hiring interns and others can have coding challenges and multiple rounds. This is where ECA Internships can surely help. We prep all our students for host companies they are interviewing for and also match you to the company that is best suited for you.
Will web-development be a good career in the years to come?
Looking at the growth trajectory and the demand, web developers will remain in-demand for this decade. As a web developer you will require to constantly upskill but the demand for skilled developers – front and back-end will only grow. With the advent of 5G, the digital world will only get more affordable and intertwined with the physical world and we will see a further burst of digital activities.
Is web-development a dying career?
Certainly not. It is fragmenting. You don’t need to be a designer anymore to be a full stack web developer. There was a time when the entire website or an app was made by one person but those days are long gone. The field will create further specialized positions in the years to come. From AI Experts to IOT Engineers all will become a part of the web development team. So as long as you are upskilling regularly and being aware of trends you have nothing to worry about.
