Why should you consider a career in web development?

You might have started university following one career path, changed your mind half-way through then graduated with no idea what you’re going to do. Don’t worry, you’re not alone, and it’s not too late to rethink what your career’s going to look like.

The technology sector has been expanding for years, and it’s also one of the most exciting and forward-thinking industries you can work in. The demand for developers is growing rapidly (20% year on year!) but the supply of developers is flat lining – in short, the tech industry needs people exactly like you!

Competition in the graduate job market is tough, and sometimes having a university degree just isn't enough. Employers value practical skills and digital literacy over fancy pieces of paper and abstract knowledge – join Makers Academy to learn how to code and show them that your knowledge goes further than just the textbooks.

Don't want to end up on a bog standard graduate program? Want to be in full control of your career and have creative freedom? Your new job in web development is just 12 weeks away.
