I am currently transitioning from one field to another. Network administration to web development to be precise.
While my CV will show my record in IT, I don't want to be misleading about my lack of experience in web development specifically.
I thought about being very implicit by placing "novice" or "inexperienced" somewhere in my resume, but on the other hand, I don't want to come off as a complete beginner (or maybe I should?).
I want to be honest about my inexperience while not devastating my chances at getting an interview.
What would be a good approach to this?
Just to clarify, I didn't just start transitioning out of the blue. I've invested the past 12 months in acquiring the relevant skill set for a junior web developer (this includes studying various programming paradigms, MVC, RESTful design, OOP and functionality, working with different frameworks and libraries, working with databases, writing secure code and of course I worked on a portfolio).
But obviously, I'm still starting out and I want that to translate the best way possible.
