I graduated from HSU (now called Cal Poly) back in 2017. For the first few years following college, I was unaware of how challenging it is to find work in this field without first having work experience (a bit of a catch-22 in a way), as I was busy getting my schooling done and working towards my degree. As such, doing freelance work in my spare time was all I could manage for a few years.
Eventually, I managed to find work by doing website development for a local musician, and shortly after that developing a Web Application for him. It took a few years, as I was working entirely on my own and still having to work part-time non-computer jobs, but I am quite proud of how much I was able to learn.
