Are there jobs out there for people with primary skills as just HTML & CSS? (With a little bit of JS for DOM manipulation)
Asking for a friend!
If he gets really good at HTML & CSS over a period of some months, what are the chances he can get a job/project as a fresher in this field? He wants to know if it'll be worth putting in the efforts in this directions for a few months.

I started off in 2013 as a freelancer with just HTML and CSS. WordPress is what I took interest it. With both these skills I was able to build a site of my own and along the way picked a little bit of JS and PHP. It was not hard - because the idea building something of my own was awesome. After that I have learn a lot along the way.
So your friend is exactly where I was 6+ years back. I found WP and it helped my structure my journey. I am sure if you friend puts in his best - he will discover what he is capable of.. Take the first step, journey will be clearer
More about what I have discovered and how - incase your friend is interested. Sharing it incase it helps this friend.

Hey Viraj, We all start from somewhere. Obviously there's a point when real progress is made. But we have to start somewhere.
I love to share the example of boiling point. It's only when you reach 100 degrees, that the transformation from liquid to steam happens. But that doesn't mean there was no energy consumed in getting from room temperature to 99 degrees. I hope that metaphor makes sense 😛
I forgot to mention that in my starting days as a ruby dev, a community like Codenewbie was very helpful 💯
