Today marks the two year anniversary of when I started as a full-time developer. I went from a CS graduate who had no web development experience to a full-stack developer working at a startup.

I wanted to share some advice I wish I had received when I started out after two years of experience.

As a fresh Comp Sci graduate of Union College (a small liberal arts college in upstate New York), I was excited to see where I could go with this degree. I read about how CS grads were on high demand in the job market, so I had an unrealistic belief that just by having a Computer Science degree, I would be able to land a job easily. Boy, was I wrong…

During my four years at Union, I took the usual CS electives that you’ll find at larger universities (data structures, algorithms, compiler design, programming languages…
