I was trolling through the Dev.to AMA site… And, came across this one from a developer named Verity: “I landed a Junior Front End Developer role after 3 months of self study, Ask Me Anything!” And one of her answers caught my eye. She was asked: “Did you ever feel like you were jumping the gun and applying to jobs too early?” That’s a big one. I get the exact same question a lot. “When do I know enough to apply for a job?” Well, here was her answer: “I have a very ‘all or nothing’ type personality, and at
[saf] I remember walking into the meeting sure the jig was up. I’d just got hired back to a company that several months earlier I’d walked out on mid-shift. And, not only did they hire me back… but I’d be getting a “promotion” to a management position. I’d wondered why they never asked about it during the interviews. Turns out a “glitch” in their system had failed to identify me as a former employee. But, it was fixed and now, just a couple days into my new job, I’d been found out.

I’m surprised more developers don’t do this. But before I get into that… I thought she was going to jump out of her chair. It was the first time I’d tried it and, to me, it felt kind of like awkward pandering. I knew my delivery was a bit off and it came out a bit funny… but apparently it didn’t matter. Her eyes lit up.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
John is top-notch and a great guy to work with.
John and I have worked together on numerous projects. John is very quick and efficient and was a pleasure to work with.
I’m a fan. I have completed several of John’s courses. I find him very knowledgeable and he has a great delivery.
John has a relaxed and engaging manner. His advice is solid and the explanations are well thought out.
John Morris is exceptional in his ability to give focused insight into Freelancing and starting one’s business. His direct methods inspire confidence in his honesty.
John is a man of integrity, who gives generously of himself to projects and people he cares about.
I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.
John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”
