Many companies on OfferZen are not specifically looking to hire developers with a university degree and will also consider those who are self-taught. However, this can vary depending on region and industry. For those just starting out, having a degree can help jump start your career.

Employers look for technically detailed descriptions of the work you've done, companies you've worked at, examples of projects you've worked on, the languages you work with. It's great to have links to your projects or samples of your code online (Github is ideal for this). Always try to include any courses you've done or certificates you've received, which will make it easier for companies to assess your experience level.ย
