II. ORGANIZATION
I chose my dream career of the front end development because it is
the one that fits me most, it has everything I am looking for. I explored the
options by thinking about all the projects I have done in my courses, the ones
that fit with the careers, and realized that the ones that I enjoyed the most
were the ones that had front end development apart of it, such as creating a
website from scratch, or making a website with a bootstrap framework
template, and any type of development that yields immediate results I really
enjoy. I collected all the information to make this decision by doing a lot of
research on the different types of web developers that there are, and the
types of jobs that are open in the Charlotte area.I learned about the different
types of tools that these developers must use, such as ASP, .NET, HTML,
CSS3, and some use frameworks such as bootstrap. The new insights I got
were that you must be extremely creative, and know how to adapt to the
requirement that your client might what. Whats next for me is exciting
because I am very passionate about making different websites now, and have
many ideas for the kinds of sites that I want to create, and put in my
portfolio. I have not come up with many questions for this career path

because I know that the first steps I must take is to practice as much as I can,
and build my portfolio in order to apply for jobs.
