Five years ago today I launched One Day One Job. Six months earlier I had given up on a job search that was going nowhere and decided to try to find a way to make the job search suck less for college students and grads. I knew a little about HR, a little about how to build a website, and a lot about how to fail at the job search. It took me six months to build something launch-worthy. Five years later I have a website and e-mail list that has reached millions of people. My business is profitable. And most importantly, I’ve helped people land jobs they never would have found without me. I still have a long way to go, but what I’ve done so far is all thanks to some rudimentary coding skills that I developed in middle and high school. Being able to build a website or write software opens up a world of opportunity, which is why I think Codecademy is the perfect company to feature today. They’re based in New York, NY, and they are building “a better way for anyone to teach, and learn, how to code.”

The Secret Code

You can code. Anyone can. The only person stopping you from doing it is you. Whether you want to land a job at your dream company or want to be able to build that idea that you’ve had for years, learning how to code will give you a chance to actually make it happen. Codecademy is one of the best places to start (and it’s free). Their current roster of course can teach you Javascript, HTML & CSS, Python, Ruby, and JQuery. That list will keep growing as Codecademy and its users continue to add content. One thing that I’ve learned in five years of helping job seekers is that job searching isn’t very productive. If all you do is look for jobs every day, you’re actually becoming less desirable to employers (“stale” is the word that they like to use). You need to make yourself more employable, and learning to code will do exactly that. Try Codecademy today. Then take a look at their Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for Designers, Developers, and an Office Manager. The latter is a totally non-technical position, but I’m sure that you could eventually play it into a technical position considering what the company does.
