What Python Projects Should I Build To Get A Job?

When you first get into Python and realize you actually want to become a Python developer, you find yourself asking “What Python Projects Should I Build To Get A Job?”. Years ago, when I was still working as a QA engineer, I had the same question. In this post, I will share my insight and what type of projects I recommend my Python Mentoring students build.

What Python Projects Should I Build To Get A Job?

There are many different Python projects you can build to improve your skills and make yourself more marketable in the job market. If you already know which type of industry you want to work in, I’d recommend you build a Python project that is relevant to that industry.

That’s exactly how I got my first Python job and several of my students are following the same steps.

Python Requests POST GET (HTTP Request Explained)

Welcome back or nice to see you for the first time!

Roberts Greibers here with another experience-based post about Python requests.

I’ve been working professionally as a Python developer for well over 7 years, I’ll share more details about my story later in the post.. (just scroll down the page to find out more about me). 

But before we talk about how qualified I am to write posts about Python requests, I’ll just give you all the answers you’ve been Googling for. 🚀

WARNING: You’re about to see the most important Python requests library use cases with clearly defined examples. 

This is the BIGGEST breakthrough you’ll ever achieve as a Python developer.

Learning and implementing this way of calling API with a Python request is a major achievement in your career that you’ll use on a daily basis for years to come. 

In this post, you’re going to explore:

🚨 I’ll explain in detail everything you should know about Python3 requests (why Python2 requests are NOT used anymore)

And I’ll show you how API calls in Python are done in a real project (from Django projects I’ve worked on)

The intention here is to give you a real Python HTTP request example you could use in your own projects. 

Just a quick note before we start: At the end of the post I’ll share details about what helped my students to get hired as Python developers, read till the end and see if that helps you too!👇🏻
