I’m a bit confused on what to do in my situation, so I’m searching for suggestions that can help me choose the ‘correct’ path to follow.
Me in a nutshell:
- I’m Italian (so a non-native English speaker)
- I can speak English fluently, German and Japanese at a basic level
- I’m 25 years old
- I don’t have a university degree
- I know the basics of C, Java and Python
Basically, I’m self-taught both in programming and language skills but, thanks to internet free courses and my efforts I landed my first job. I’m very passionate about what I do so I’ll take in consideration every possible path that ends with me living and working in Japan.
I started with web development because here in Italy is the only thing you can do without experience / degree but in the future I would like to work on more back-end / low-level projects (robots or VR would be amazing).
Thanks for reading the whole thing, I would really appreciate if you put yourself in my shoes and try to figure out what to do from now on My idea now, according to the useful resources I found here on TokyoDev, is to find another job as a web developer here in Italy, improving my general skills as a developer, passing the PhilNITS exam and then try to land a job in Japan after all this covid situation is gone… But, in my opinion, my idea is too general and maybe also naive…
