myss45681yIn today's world of IT, three years is eternity, I don't know how anyone would be considered junior after that time of active developing.
Apply anyway. The worst they can do is say no and waste your time.
I remember stacking boxes..
I also remember still not getting a junior position even though I had 35+ years experience !
The person who got the job, knew someone in the company, and had zero experience !
As such, perhaps the answer is to try and network with folk who could pull strings for you and get you a job.
Maybe find out where some local businesses staff hang out..
Research who might be suitable people in company X to get to know..
Maybe the CEO is a keen cyclist..
Or plays golf. (I hear golf is a good place to network.)

I used to think like that, but after applying for hundreds of positions, I began to notice I was wasting a lot of time !
One position in particular involved a 2 day interview ! (Still didn't get it, even though I scored top marks in everything they tested me on..)
As such, I began to research other ways you might get a job, other than through the front door..
I've learned that Portillo's help, do you have one ?
That reminds me, just how are you supposed to get a box off a shelf when its jammed in-between all the other boxes ?
