I’ve been learning frontend web development for a while now and after getting to a stage I react I decided to test the waters as regards to available jobs. I’ve been spamming LinkedIn and Indeed with applications though I apply for mostly Internship or Entry level positions.
Its been over two weeks I’ve been sending applications and only one Lebanese company has contacted me for an assessment and I’ve applied for over 200 jobs within that period.
The issue now is that the Lebanese company gave me a mini full stack project to complete within 48 hours though the time can be extended on request. Now I’m just a rookie frontend developer with no experience at all with back end, the frontend of the project has to be done with react which I can handle but I’m stuck at the back end.
I downloaded tones of tutorials on node js pertaining the project but I can’t just wrap my head around it within such limited time frame. I have a little below 24 hours before the deadline and I’ve made little or no head way.
Even if I manage to get the project done won’t I be biting more than I can chew knowing it’s a full stack position? Or should I find a way around the project and learn on the job?. I wouldn’t want my desperation for a job to put me into trouble.
Should I let this one slide and wait for opportunities that suit my current skill set while I further develop my skills? I haven’t slept for the past 24 hours due to this project and I’m stressed out already.
Please my bosses I need your input on this matter.
Modified: I’ve been able to create a react app that displays the CSV file table on the frontend but I’m just overwhelmed with the back end
