yes! however, you should have some projects to showcase the skills that you currently have to your potential employers. They would help to demonstrate that you are not just a flat white paper on your resume.

BTW the original post was suggesting #help as a tag on a new standalone post rather than as a comment here, so if you need more answers on the topic or have similar questions, post some new topics with that tag.
