Hi Julio, thanks for your reply.

There are other ways to get experience, without getting hired. It’s a sea of tutorials out there, even some of the free ones are good.

I’m not familiar about the situation in Belgium but my advice would be to present yourself as passionate and diligent about programming, choose a niche (language, framework) and track your progress in GitHub and/or a personal website.

Then apply for internships where you will be mentored. That’s the best way to learn and gain experience.

What has been your experience so far?
