Recently got hired to be an IT at a small law firm.

I have HTML in my resume and they mentioned that they want me to help redesign their website.

I'm shit at designing websites but I am sure I can fake it and muster up something half decent.

My question is: what should I get out of this? They said they will compensate me for the redesign but I'm not sure what web dev make per website.

Anyone else got any "fake it til you make it" tech stories?

> fake it till you make it

There’s really no other way to work in the tech industry; everything moves so fast you’re pretty much constantly learning new things

The way to survive is to pretend you know stuff long enough to learn it
