Let's explore your responsibilities as a junior developer.

Responsibilities as a junior developer

“First, welcome to your new life! Ask questions! Find a work buddy with whom you feel comfortable asking any tech question. Never let anyone make you feel bad asking a question - there are no dumb questions. Ask a lot. Draw diagrams. Read the code. Reassert your assumptions. Breathe.”

- Scott Hanselman

Barring toxic workplaces, most employers who knowingly hire junior or entry-level developers know what they’re signing up for and will give you all the training and support you need to succeed in your new job!

Companies prefer junior developers

In fact, a (rare) few employers actually prefer hiring juniors because they come without preconceived notions and are moldable to their methodology.
