How do you feel when you think about looking for your first job in tech—or even just learning the skills you need for that job? Are you overwhelmed by all the choices? Confused as to where to start? Or just completely at a loss wondering what the possibilities are?
When you’re getting started in a new field, it’s easy to feel like you’ll never have enough experience to get any job – much less your dream job! And, even when you know you have the skills, you might think there’s nobody who’s interested in them.
The 681,059 open jobs in tech should help you see that there are more than plenty of opportunities in the field. And if you think that none are for newbies like you, these 50 actual job postings should set you straight.
Just take a look at a few (or a lot!) of them to see all the different kinds of positions open to you when you know even just the fundamentals of tech.
