Quick ways for a software developer to make cash? Not really a web developer, I do embedded C, c++, and have Java/C# experience.
I'm going through a career change. I signed up for a coding boot camp and am hoping that I it will help me make a decent wage.
I've heard Java developers start out making anywhere from 40k - 65k a year. Is this true? I'd be a junior developer.
That's so reassuring.
I have 3 college degrees (BS Psych / BA Phil / AA Crim) and went almost nowhere with it. Fortunately I did it all in one go - so it was only the cost of one degree (I overloaded on credits and graduated high school early). Immaturity and lack of life experience on my part expected a living wage when I graduated! Now I work an entry level job (although I do tutoring on the side).
I need a stable job with benefits.
Have you programmed anything you can show in job interviews? If you don't have a degree you're going to need to prove that you can code. Programming job interviews are not easy
That's the point of the boot camp. They take you and show you how to code.
I've done some things and have a portfolio, but mostly I'm waiting to see what they have for me there.
They've got like a 98% job placement rate, and they work on making sure you have a strong portfolio.
