I'm kinda insecure about my main focus being web stuff. I'm pretty good at it and it comes naturally - and more importantly, there are tons of web jobs. But I've always wanted to do something more unique and interesting, you know? I don't wanna introduce myself as web developer.

    Based on your profile you don't just do "web" dev right?

    Change that out for "software" or something else more appropriate.

    Tbh, I think it is easiest to land job as a "web developer". These jobs are like 80% of current open job positions for software developer.

    Even my field of work is invaded by web developers (server development), so there is many fields you can fill as a "web developer".

    @C0D4 web is my job so it's the only thing I do professionally. Everything else is on the side.

    @AlgoRythm naming is irrelevant. being able to explain what you do and why you do it is more important.

    When you talk about web development and I start drooling because of boredom (or because it sounds like a rap sheet...), you really suck.

    Looking at your profile, you seem to be a jack of all trades... Looking at this post, maybe not so confident.

    But being able to adapt and having broad knowledge is definitely a huge plus point. Don't label yourself and make yourself smaller than you are.

    if you don't mind, can you explain why you feel that? my insecurity is the exact opposite . I was under the impression that a lot of careers open up if you have a good knowledge of how web dev tools work.

    Like @amatrelan said, going into server dev from web dev is an option. one of my friend got into being a blockchain engineer , and he was fairly confident that his js skills was responsible for his success. another got into system programming (something to do with css used in windows i guess?) .
    I thought that its kinda root of all the other streams and am missing a lot if i don't get into it
