I know C# and SQL queries. I've learned enough about javascript to make functional charting. I feel I could pick up and run with Java in less than a week if I needed to. I dont know much about the front end or middleware. How should I market myself to get my foot in the door when I see so much "full stack senior dev wanted" and so few openings for junior dev.

    I wouldn't lead w/ 'i feel i could pickup java in a week' or 'i dont know much about the front end or middleware'... if you mean u can pu java syntax in a week, great, but syntax w/o understanding the fx & runtime isnt exactly useful. What do you use c# & javascript for?

    Are you trying to get a more senior role? If so, learn more/broader/deeper tech. Based on the description provided i wouldn't consider you for more than lvl 2 at boeing...

      OP
      No, I am switching careers from full-time aerospace engineering/part-time developer to full-time developer. So I am looking for my first junior role.

      With C# ive developed a data analysis too to help a friend fix his company's API. The javascript, html, css are things i've picked up developing data visualization and workflow tools for my various aerospace teams.

      Boeing IT has a lot of internal projects, could check w a hiring manager on what skills theyre looking for & go from there... from exp, projects that support the business are much more interesting than pure IT initiatives, though w 2nd century stuff taking hold you may see fewer projects building products & probably more building integrations, so middleware may become more important. Check w a mgr at BT&E or BCA manufacturing to see what their initiatives are...

    My advice to you is if you are looking for a development role, write code and blog about it. Have your GitHub repository with projects and have tutorials about stuff you know. Create some full stack projects and deploy them. Nothing says competence like a body of work to reference
