I FINALLY DID IT!! I landed a job!! I'm going to be a firmware engineer!! Woohoo!! 😁
It only took half a year, but I finally got one, and purely off my own merit. It feels damn good when you get the job with no references or connections, just your own skills.
After a highly successful on-site technical/whiteboard interview, I was 90% confident I'd get it. The fact that my job search is finally over, is such a fucking relief. Good riddance to endless interview prep, applications & rejections.
I start on Monday. Goodbye freedom >.<

    @Koolstr I like it :-) Developing SW with robustness in mind because updating isn't an easy option, dealing with physics, reading hardware schematics and datasheets for doing things right, occasionally using an oscilloscope for debugging, sometimes soldering a little bit. And no bullshit JavaScript frameworks.

    @Fast-Nop Welp as much as I might've enjoyed work like that, turns out what I am doing is nothing like that lol. I'll be designing the Web UI for their firmware >.<
