I've been looking into ReactJS and I really like it. I've done the tutorials and worked through some apps of my own. In short, I am confident that I now know it well enough that I am ready to tackle a professional gig.
So, now that I am at a point where I am ready to get started professionally, how do I "break in" without any prior work experience? (That old catch-22, where if you want to get a job, you need to have had a job.)
React is not like AWS or MSCE where there is any official certification you can get. (At least none that I have seen. Maybe I am missing something.)
Also, I've heard some freelancers say, "price yourself lower", while others say, "don't undercharge or you'll only attract the kinds of clients who don't value you and will make your life miserable".
I guess my question is: how can I proceed from here?
