Hi, I've never had a job in web development before but I've been independently learning several languages and building websites recently.
I was just wondering if there's anyone in this line of work who can offer ANY sort of advice about companies to go for or companies not to go for, where to work, how to increase chances of getting a job in this field and how long you think I'll have to search before I can find a job within this field.
My web development skills are quite good I would say, I've looked at websites of most fellow "web developers" my age and feel that the work I create is of a much better standard.
Also, do employers care for "bad coding" i.e. if using a lot of <br> <font> tags in html rather than doing it all in the css. Or redoing something by hand each time in php rather than creating a function for it?
Look forward to some opinions!
