    What is holding you back to post your CV on multiple sites' apply page?

    I've never done it, and I don't know how!

    I could prove to be a valuable asset, I just don't know where to start. I've only done work for myself!

    To be honest, I'm not the one you are looking for if you wanna get a job, I haven't got one because (damn you school) the fucking education system is stealing all my time in the pandemic.

    But, you can always
    * Get into a mentor learning course
    * Do some projects and post them on github to refer them as experience.
    * Study to interview questions from YouTube. CS Dojo is a good one!
    * btw I use arch
    * Just go to a company's site and press the "apply" link and pray to god
    * Contribute to a Open Source Project
    * Google this subject because I'm no HR.
    * Read some books about it! HumbleBundle has a great offer right now! For starters though.

    Good luck!

    I've got so many projects and programs, and my list of skills far surpasses the amount allowed on a resume! I will go through all of this, and do it again. Thank you kindly!

    Most important tip: don't send the same resume to everyone.

    1. Pick a posting you're interested in
    2. List your skills and experience that are relevant to that position
    3. List a few that are tangential and indicate growth, market awareness
    4. Share some commits you're proud of and why they should care
    N. Include a cover letter that tells them why they should give a shit. What makes you different and better than the next bucket o' skills on paper.

    Last, a resume should be 2 pages. 1 for the cover letter, 1 for the skills and experience. Any longer and you get binned.

    I feel you. I'm basically working for free on a project of a teacher of mine hoping he notices I'm good and hires me for an embedded systems internship he has, but idk if I'm doing the right thing, I don't wanna get stuck working for free the whole year.

    Also, on our second meeting I already showed up with a working prototype and my teacher got confused and now thinks another guy in the group made the prototype (the guy knows nothing btw, in his mind everything's made with node). Oh, and the guy silently took credit for it and I didn't have the balls to say that it wasn't him .-.
