    My advice is to look for an internship in France (Paris) until march 2021. Because of Corona and Brexit policy will change by the day as there will be probably a "No Deal Brexit". Sucks to be young in these times tbh. 😢

    @heyheni I read on the UK government website that the rules after the brexit are not so complicated...

    Pretty much everyone is hiring as long as you don’t expect to get paid enough to pay your rent or food.
    But if you have a DL you can drive for uber and make more than you would as a dev. Except you need a tfl license.

    @molaram my deadline is september which was acceptable before Coronavirus but I'm not sure now

    Imho you’re trying to move to a worst, more competitive market. If my french didn’t suck I’d have stayed in France when had the opportunity.

    @molaram Ironically, the assumption is the same with France.

    @Tounai its still a smaller less competitive market than the UK. The smaller the market and the more exotic the niche, the more profitable it is nowadays.

    @molaram I have my reasons (other than just my job) to move, however, in France, 90% of the companies hiring in IT are services company which treat us like cattle, plus we don't have a technology culture, therefore, most of the IT jobs are quite uninteresting. And ask anybody here, he will say that you will earn more in UK
    Grass is always greener elsewhere anyway.

    @Tounai good luck with your move mate, I hope you pull it off and have great success. I also hope you’ll survive the food :)

    @molaram If I move, I invite you, so, you will see that the problem is not the food but the cook :')

    on a side note: if it's adventure your seeking. The Taiwanese government is paying foreign students to study in Taiwan 480€ a month and ~1600€ a semester. Including the flight ticket.
    You get to do your Master in CS or management and learn chinese and spend nights at streetfood stalls. Taking tours with your moped through taiwans stunning scenery. And you get to know students from all over the world, which gives you the connections to work where you want.
    And you get to work 15 hours a week on a student visa.

    That's a good deal if you ask me? 😄
    If you would do the master within two years the job market will probably be recovered again.

    Graduate programs are where you'll want to look, but bear in mind a lot of companies have suspended those programs in the wake of covid, with some suspending hiring entirely.

    Since everyone is working remotely, companies that are hiring generally want experienced devs who they can be reasonably confident will just be able to "get on with stuff" when working remotely. For better or worse, the assumption is that graduates will generally need "babysitting" to some degree, and that doesn't work well remotely.

    @AlmondSauce I am fortunately working for two years (apprenticeship), it's not ideal I know but It's more than nothing... However, I understand the point. It's too bad because I'm very motivated. This crisis really fucked me...
