Can I get a job only with Python basics?

Lets say I know the basics (including loops, functions, modules, classes...etc) and just basics, can I get a job only with that and start mastering in time while working?

Well, if you know somehow, it would be really difficult to get a job in a big company. But still, you work as junior. {Junior is the programmer, who helps to do some easy tasks under controll of masters (good programmers, with huge experience). Note that this position is not well paid, but you can get a lot of experience 😉} Good luck!

Yes, you can, but I prefer to learn also the essential languages such as HTML, CSS and JS etc.

Too many factors to take in... 1) current unemployment rate 2) amount of companies that work with python 3) amount of experience expected 4) job market

Kidfand this is what i want, to get more experience and learn from others. It doesn't matter if it's not well paid, since my main goal is to learn and go deeper

Try to find ways to use Python in your current job. It is far easier to find people who know how to code than it is to find people who are driven, able to solve problems, and willing to take on responsibility. If you can find ways to contribute to your company's success (beyond doing what you are told), other companies will see that... and you will gain the practical know-how that enables coding to be useful. I have worked with people who learned every language from Assembly to Java, but didn't have the chops to put any of it together. ...Companies pay people who are useful. So learn how to make coding useful to yourself or your company.

But, come to think of it Peter David Carter, how is that really going to help, because according to me and the little research i've done, employers need someone who can handle different constructs using different languages...unless you want to develop a console executed program, right?

Answer is yes. Python is quite easy compared to other language, considering a lot of built in functions which ease you a lot of work(eg. sorting, splitting ). However, if you trying to apply the jobs such as machine learning or data science related, you might need some experience (since you need to understand theories or algorithms).
