Develop a Job has released their newest web application which guides job seekers towards a career change into the web development field. The application offers career guidance combined with a five step plan using free internet based resources to instruct learners at their own pace.
— Fortune magazine ranked web development as the “Top Hot Career” for 2012 and beyond. Money magazine has Web Developer in their 2012 “Best Jobs in America” and “10 Least Stressful Jobs” lists. The average Web Developer salary in the United States is $73,317 a year, which is 46% greater than the average American salary. The combination of growth, potential, and salary make web development an excellent choice for the unemployed or underemployed seeking a career change.
Develop a Job (http://developajob.com) was founded by a team of web developers who wanted to create a free, ad supported site designed to guide anyone into becoming a Web Developer. The founding team saw the shortage of good developers first hand from their own hiring experiences. They wanted to produce a resource where the unemployed or underemployed can initiate a career change with no cost, no registration, and no time constraints.
There is no cost or educational barrier to becoming a Web Developer. The career does not need a college degree to be successful. Web development skills can be learned solely from free internet resources and a potential Web Developer can build a portfolio in their own time using a standard personal computer and free software. The lack of barriers and free access to information allow a self-paced path to career change.
Develop a Job’s application uses five steps to guide career changers into a full-fledged career as a Web Developer. The suggested time to complete all steps in a part-time capacity is six months. A focused learner could be successful in two months. Once completing the course outlined a learner will be ready to begin their career as a Web Developer with a starting average salary of $61,250.
The newly released web application also includes a personal story from one of its founders (http://developajob.com/a-personal-story). He recounts how becoming a Web Developer changed his life. His salary increased $97,000 in six years as he started and grew his new career as a Web Developer. His experiences, and the experiences of all the co-founders of Develop a Job, influenced the career changing steps Develop a Job outlines.
Develop a Job (http://developajob.com) produces web based applications focusing on helping job seekers begin a career in web development. Based in Atlanta, GA, the Develop a Job team is a committed group of professional Web Developers whose goal is to expand and strengthen their field.
