Learning multiple programming languages at the same time?

So I’m fairly new to the programming world and I’m taking Python as my first programming language. However through my time learning, I’ve learned that JavaScript is even more popular and profitable as a programming language.
I do have a passion for software but I also have the need to be employable as soon as possible as my life depends on it.
Should I just focus 100% on Python? Could I take JS simultaneously?

If your new and just learning your first language its usually recommended to just stick with the one language initially. Concentrate on learning the concepts and fundamentals behind the language ie: variables, functions, control flow, classes because these concepts can be taken and applied to other languages.

Once you have a good grasp of underlying programming concepts and fundamentals, its much easier to branch out and learn multiple languages / technologies at the same time.
