I don't want to disillusion you, but you are competing with freelancers here who have years of experience. This is not the place to find , as you put it, a training job. You should be trained already and have the skills and experience needed to offer your services to a client to get their job done. Clients don't come here to look for a freelancer to train, or has very little training and is not capable of getting their job completed sucessfully.

 

My advice to you is to optain a job in the B&M world so that you can get the necessary skills. Or even volunteer for positions that need the snall skills you have now so you can build on that. Or look for internships that will expose you to real world experience.

Hi Mohamed,

 

I think it would be best to get advice from other web developers so that you can be guided properly on where you can get the training that you need.
