Search for the right job and you’ll often find a recruiter who seems a bit too enthusiastic about the prospect of getting your hands dirty with web development.
In fact, they’ll tell you they’re looking for an “enterprise web developer” or an “information technology” developer.
It’s not uncommon for those who claim to be a web programmer to be more enthusiastic about becoming a web designer or developer than about finding work as a web server developer.
But is this really the case?
It turns out that many of those claiming to be web developers are actually quite the opposite.
It turns, in fact, out that it’s quite possible that most of them are not web developers at all.
In this article, we’ll explore the truth behind these claims, and we’ll also look at some real life examples of web developers who actually do actually have web development experience.
In the next two parts of this series, we’re going to dig into the reasons behind these fake claims, including some practical steps you can take to ensure your claims aren’t bogus.

Myth #2: I’m a web application developer.
Myth: I want to be the next Java/Facebook/Spotify/etc. web developer.
There are a lot more job descriptions than web developers.
Many people are not even sure what they want to do with their lives, so hiring web developers can be a daunting prospect.
In many cases, hiring web development isn’t even something you’ll want to think about.
But this doesn’t mean you should just give up and forget about it.
There are plenty of other career paths you could take.
Myth: I think I’m going to become a web author.

The web is a way to communicate and access information, and it can serve as a bridge between disparate parts of our lives.
Myth#3: I am going to start building my own websites.
Myth : I want my site to have an analytics component.
This isn’t true.
It is a misconception that many people have that web developers don
