For the career planning section, there was a good amount of materials gone over since the first day Vestibule started. One of the things I have learned was that there are many more companies than I have anticipated that are hiring and are very diverse in what these hiring companies are aiming to accomplish. Another aspect I have learned was that although computer science degrees are nice, companies point out that they do seek people without degrees who know how to program/code if shown potential. I realized there a good amount of choices in terms of job hiring platforms and I hope to take more time to research into using those resources as extensively as I can to help with my career planning with the goal of aiming to apply and work as an either a Front-End Web Developer or Full Stack. While I hope to be ready to apply to those positions, I hope to be able to work for both known companies or startup companies.

Research 3 job postings matching the type of position/company you would be interested to apply to. Compare the skills and qualifications required for those positions with the skills and qualifications that the training would provide. Mention conclusion including any additional steps you are planning to take to prepare youself for these opportunities.

Some of the job postings I would be interested in applying would be the 3 below as examples.

Web Design Intern at PlayStation

Staff Web Engineer at Reddit

Software Engineer, Web Infrastructure at Airbnb

For the listed postings, the jobs generally require knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and UI/UX designs. With the TechHire program, I would be able to apply to these jobs from the resources the Bootcamp provides as it is part of the program. To prepare myself for taking additional steps, I would constantly practice coding to get very familiar as well as drawing out wireframe designs and then testing those designs to actually people and reiterating on it.
