Changing your career is not an easy task. However, an hour a day for self-development during the year is almost 360 hours of training. During this time, really master the knowledge for the position of junior in an IT company.
Learn with your hands, not your ears
You can watch videos one of these days, but there will be no progress. It is best to learn in practice. For example, on training sites for beginners such as free code camp or coders, in Figma – a popular tool for web designers, or try free courses on the basics of programming languages Front-end and Java from Mate academy. By the way, also at Mate academy you can get a free basic training course and learn the syntax within 14 days and make sure that writing code is yours.
Find a mentor who is already a middle or senior programmer
Pump English to pre-intermediate
It is in English that they write a lot of information about the development and compile all the technical documentation for any programming language. Pumping up English to the pre-intermediate level is easy: you can use language applications, subscribe to thematic Telegram channels, or take a short online course, information about which we often publish on the channel.
Find IT courses that you enjoy and that you enjoy
Unfortunately, many programming courses do not provide relevant knowledge or are taught only to produce a diploma. In addition, the cost of IT courses in Ukraine can reach 20,000 hryvnias per month. But there are good free alternatives. For example, courses from large IT companies (Epam, SoftServe) or Mate academy, which teach quality and free of charge before employment. In 3-4 months they will make you a confident jun, pump English and help with finding a job. And only after getting a job in IT will you pay for training.
