How to Become a Job-Ready Programmer

The world is a place where learning never stops, and there is no specific time or age for learning. Learning can be any type it is totally up to the learner what he wants to learn. Several times I have seen people asking the question “How to become a job-ready programmer?” you can develop into a programmer who is ready for work by studying fundamental terms as well as fundamental concepts from various perspectives. Before the detailed answer to the question “How to become a job-ready programmer?” a detailed introduction is required to programming. As mentioned earlier, A learner must need to learn the basics of the concerned field thoroughly. Because it builds the proper learning environment and the field becomes much easier to understand. For a friendly learning environment introduction to the field need to be understood first. The introduction to programming is as below.


“A set of well-defined instructions given to the computer to solve a particular solution after processing the inputs is called programming.” It is one of the prominent terms in the field of Information Technology. In programming, multiple instructions are written to communicate with the computer and make the computer process these instructions according to the given procedures. A computer is an electronic machine, so it has its own language. Like human language, a computer has also several languages such as JAVA, Python, C-Sharp, C++, C, etc. Every language has its way of instruction for the computer. Mostly the format and libraries are identical in computer programming languages. Programming is also called coding in the context of developers and programmers.

There are two types of programming.

  • Structured Programming
  • Unstructured programming

Structured Programming:

A type of programming that divide the instructions or coding lines in the form of a small block. The small block of code helps the programmer in debugging and functional understanding. This type of programming plays a vital role to become a job-ready programmer and also a good programming approach.

Unstructured programming:

In unstructured programming, small coding units or small blocks of code are not used. All the instructions and coding lines are written sequentially. This type of programming was involved in early programming language versions such as COBOL, FORTRAN, and BASICS. Following are some simple terms required to become a job-ready programmer or to get a job as a programmer, developer, or software engineer.

First of all, we have to know who is a programmer?


A programmer can be defined as “A person who is giving instructions or writing instructions to the computer to solve a particular problem is called PROGRAMMER.” As we discussed earlier programming languages, a programmer must need to learn about programming languages.

Learn about Data basics and Computer Architecture:

In the modern era of programming languages, there are several spectacular facilities such as developing well-designed applications without giving attention to the hardware which helps the most. For a job-ready programmer, it is very necessary to keep his eyes on the hardware-based supports such as  CPU usage, Memory allocations, etc. Here are some computer architecture basic that good programmers always learn in their minds. The first one is Microchips also called “Integrated Circuits” these microchips are electrical components that are essential to the operation of microchips. Transistors are little electrical circuits that are always either off (zero) or on (one). Thousands of billions of micro transistors may be integrated into a single microchip.

In modern computers, these Integrated circuits are replaced with microprocessors generally called a Central Processing Unit (The brain of the computer). CPU is further divided into major components, ALU and CU. ALU stands for Arithmetic logic unit and Cu stands for Control unit.

Computer Architecture has also short-term memory called RAM (Random Access Memory) which plays a main role in computer architecture. All the processing and working of the computer takes place under the supervision of Random access memory. It is also called Temporary memory because it stores addresses and instructions of the computer temporarily and removes the instructions and address after executing instead of saving this type of transaction permanently.

ROM (Read-only memory) performs these types of actions by saving data permanently. It has multiple types having more facilities for data saving or removing.

All of these structures are kept on a microprocessor as extended strings of ones and zeros. Bits are the names for these ones and zeros.

A byte is the standard unit of storage for eight bits at a time. A byte is just an arrangement of 8 bits, such as 00001111 or 01100110. This kind of information representation is known as a binary representation.

Learn about Programming languages:

To Become a job-ready programmer you need to start researching the programming languages. Every programming language has a unique way of learning and they also differ in writing rules with each other. As a beginner programmer basic languages should be a target to be learned first such as C++ programming language. C++ is a basic and easy language in the context of programming. It has a wide range of libraries that are easy to be implemented. C++ programming language is also called the base of programming or software development, now a days in the modern age C++ is still used by different expert programmers to develop useful products and software.

A Beginner must need to set a particular target in the development side that he is going to be achieved because this field is very vast and programming is also further categorized into several areas such as Web Programming, .Net Programming, Android App programming, Unity Programming, and Desktop programming. All these categories required programmers to have the skills in the particular category. With the specific field-based programmer, these categories are also required a specific programming language or these categories are based on specific programming languages such as:

  • web programming is mostly based on JavaScript, SQL, HTML, CSS, Angular, and Objective C  programming languages.
  • Android App Development programming and Desktop application development use JAVA, C#, C++, Python, and Lua programming languages.

So to become a job-ready programmer you have to learn more than one programming language from basics to expert level. Furthermore, after familiarizing yourself with programming languages you should also be familiarized with data basics and computer architecture.

Learn to code precisely:

To become a job-ready programmer you don’t need any particular degree. However, most of the degree holders admitted that they learned with their work and practice. If a beginner doesn’t familiar with coding, he can select a specific programming language and start learning deeply. Many success stories of programmers from beginner to job-ready or experienced have started from the language JavaScript. There are thousands of courses on YouTube, you just need to pick the goal.

Furthermore, I am making it easier for you to choose the focused topics in programming language as follows.

1.  IF/Else Statement:

We will discuss the IF statement first. Most of the programming takes the service of this statement. It basically checks the given conditions and allows the code to run. The condition may consist of one or more values respectively. The following example is showing the IF statement and also defined its working deeply. For a beginner programmer, it is a necessary point to learn and use this statement that will help the learner in becoming a job-ready programmer.

let x = 10;

if ( x > 5 ) {

    console.log(‘X > 5’);


else {

    console.log(‘X not > 5’);


We created the variable x and gave it the value 10. Next, we have our if statement.
The evaluation condition, in this case, x > 5, is contained in a series of parentheses after the word “if”. In this case, we already know that x equals 10, hence this condition is true. We created the variable x and gave it the value 10. Next, we have our if statement.
The evaluation condition, in this case, x > 5, is contained in a series of parentheses after the word “if.” In this case, we already know that x equals 10, hence this condition is true. The code within the curly braces will be performed because the condition in the parenthesis is true, and the message “X > 5” will be displayed on the screen. (Since we didn’t get into console.log(semantics, )’s just know that it displays the value. We also used an else statement in the same case. This enables us to run a particular code if the condition in the condition is false.

Similarly in the case of else the wrong condition will automatically be displayed on the screen. And the else part is  displaying  (X not >5)

2. While loop

While loop deals with the iterations. It is the advanced version of if/else. Generally check the condition if the condition is true then display the written code from the body and keep checking the condition until the condition becomes false.

let x = 1;
while ( x <= 100 ) {
console.log(Becoming a job-Ready Programmer’);
x = x + 1;

In the above example, we initialize x to be equivalent to 1. Next, a while loop is created. We add a condition in a manner similar to the if statement. In this instance, the condition is x <= 100. As long as x is less than or equal to 100, this condition will remain true. The code block to be executed is then specified in curly brackets. Our message is first printed to the console. Next, we increase x by 1.

The loop now makes an attempt to determine whether the condition is still true. Since the variable x was increased during the initial iteration of the loop, its value is now 2. Due to the fact that 2 is less than 100, the condition is still true. The program in the loop iterates until the value of x is increased to 101. The condition is now false because x is bigger than 100, and the function in the loop ends. Similarly, all the loops are the same as above but different in their syntax.

Design an effective profile:

After learning a programming language it is not enough for becoming a job-ready programmer. After learning a language programmer needs to develop some project or software. Take some modern ideas from the internet and use them in your own programming. Never stop your practice always try to do some innovations. Further, I’m making this a lot easier for you by providing some ideas for the beginning of your journey.

  • Develop a personal website and share your projects.
  • Develop small online apps.
  • Keep eye on the trends.
  • Build a portfolio by referencing your projects.
  • Start from simple work

As mentioned above you don’t need to go for big companies at the start. You should start doing simple and basic jobs with smaller software companies it makes you more confident and experienced. Within 7 to 10 months of your job, your experience makes your profile capable of the job as a junior programmer and other jobs as a programmer. Try this procedure thoroughly to become a job-ready programmer or developer.

Keep trying for modernization:

Never stop learning because the world is advancing day by day, if you stop learning the new trend will come up and this world throw you down and will move on toward modernization. For example, from 2002 to 2010 the programming language Java go huge popularity and was also considered a modern language but after the development of C sharp and other web languages java dropped down and most of the development was started with c Sharp. So you need to keep learning new trends as well because it is necessary for your future challenges.


To become a job-ready programmer you need several steps as defined. The first beginner has to be familiar with databases and computer architecture because this is the basic asset. After this beginners should learn about programming, types of programming, and the programming languages to choose an appropriate language for basic learning. Furthermore, build a portfolio and share your projects with the job offering manager or HR manager.
