Do Not Settle

The web development job market is too strong for you to stay in any job you are unhappy with. You should not be afraid to test the job market at any point in your career.

Because the job market is in favor of the employees, it is up to the employers to provide you with reason to stay. Just letting your employer know you are unhappy may produce some good results for you, and if your issues are not addressed you can easily move on to another web development position.

Find what you want. It is out there for you.


  1. Thank you for this awesome guide Robert! The material listed has been exactly what I’m looking for and as someone who only knows one person in the field of web development, your perspective and advice is greatly appreciated and extremely beneficial to me. Please continue the awesome work.

  2. In my job hunt I’ve noticed many employers are asking for languages outside the three you mentioned a front end guy should learn (such as Angular and JNode or something similar); is there any need to update the skillset? As someone in the industry for a while now do you see additional languages becoming absolutely necessary to get those lucrative positions?

    1. Angular and Node are both based in JavaScript. Learning standard JavaScript is a good idea because you can apply that knowledge and use the variety of libraries and frameworks available based on JavaScript.
