We can confidently say that getting a job in no code even with minimal experience is real!
If you are starting to learn or have already studied one of the no code tools, then you probably expect to find your first order or job soon. We can confidently say that getting a job in no code even with minimal experience is real! But you need to take a few steps so that your destiny finds you.
Our first advice to those who enter IT through No-code is to start monitoring vacancies from the first day of training. This must be done for two reasons.
Find and view all study and practice projects you have. Finish everything that was not completed, and finalize the appearance - this is important. Appearance will be the first thing to consider.
Finish work on the appearance and fix the description of each project: what is it - a web, mobile application, service; type — online store, marketplace, community, LMS; number of roles and parties; main functions; software package.
Collect it in a list in free form - then it will be easy to make a portfolio out of it.
As often as possible, open the program in which you study and intend to work. And not only to repeat educational projects after the teacher - do something of your own there as often as possible.
There is such a paradox - the employer requires a portfolio, but often does not even look at it or looks casually. We draw two conclusions - a portfolio is a must and you need to make it as simple as possible.
Therefore, first of all, think about the accessibility of the portfolio.
Make it, for example, simply in Google Docs or in Notion. Let it be a list of projects with their name, links to previews or published projects and their description.
When communicating with a customer or employer, ask as many questions as possible. You need to ask about the development project right away, at the very first interview - so you will immediately understand whether you are suitable for this job and whether the conditions, price, requirements for the project suit you.
Ask everything you, as a developer, need to know about a future project.
By the way, customers often do not know what they want - your task is to extract this information from them. A lot depends on the answers. The price tag for work, the choice of platform and the software package to be used, additional services.
Fix the agreements in any way convenient for you and the customer - this can be a regular Google document. Feel free to form a technical task from this.
The customer wants a prototype - assemble it quickly in one of the programs! You can really make a draft of an application in a few hours and impress the customer with the first version of the product. At the same time, you will better understand what he wants.
You can go even further - through a screen demonstration, show part of the process and clarify the details right along the way.
Remember that the employer or customer knows less about no code than you do, so you are a professional compared to him. You may even be a Certified Moxly Expert. Therefore, in a conversation, keep yourself confident - and ask questions about the project!
But try not to exaggerate - don't lie, stay honest. First, be open about what things can and can't be done in no code. Secondly, admit that you can't do certain types of work (if so) - for example, that you feel insecure working with a complex workflow or that you are creating a database for a long time. Perhaps, in this case, you will look for a developer on a subcontract, and this is a normal practice.
