Need Programming Career advice

Jan 14, 2017
Hello all,
I just graduated (meng ECE). During graduation, all my time went into the projects and studying for the classes as I took studies seriously. I graduated with good grades. During my free time, I programmed in scripting languages like AHK for automation software for my own use.
Right now, I am confused about what to learn for getting a full-time job. The paths I see are
1) Web Developer which needs javascript, Nodes.js, angular.js
2) Java
3) python
I love to solve complex problems and completed my projects using scripts which saved time. My interests include automation, mobile app development, website development.
I have experience with PHP, Wordpress, HTML, CSS.
I feel like Jack of all trades but master of none.
I can't decide which path to select and proceed and want to end this overthinking loop.

Find companies you want to work for, research that company. What do they need? Learn that. Do not be a jack of all trades on your resume, be a perfect fit for the job they offer. Tailor yourself to the job you are applying for.

Go to events / meetups related to your field, shake some hands, get some references.

Lastly, why the hell are you asking for career advice here? Go see a career counselor.

Edit: never think you are not good enough to apply. never think you are too good to apply.
