vane862331dI am victim of my CV right now. If not my determination despite I finished over 12 projects in small teams I would land on street without job and money.
Well that’s the world we live in.
I have an option right now to climb to a product manager role. This serves as a red herring. Thanks for the rant my man. Hope it gets better for you for the system seems to fucked into oblivion. Best of luck.
cho-uc128631dDo I really have to hit +600 applications?! 😭😭
I usually only applied to 20-30 ads, got several interviews, and 1-2 offers.
The offer may not be perfect but it's usually acceptable.
I don't want to have to wait so long (like 8 months?!) to hit 600+. Being in a not-so-perfect job is better than being unemployed.
Are you that picky?
@3rdWorldPoison think before you get into PM. It's not bad in itself just that People have fucked it up.
@cho-uc 600+ applications in 1 month, not 8 months.
And what part of my post makes you think I am picky? The whole post was comparison between a dev and rest of the folks go through.
So in average 20 submissions/day.
That's still a lot, I am not sure there are even that much ads out there (in 1 country), except if you're applying internationally (in other countries too?).🤔
It feels like you're not serious in your job search, and you're just testing the water (finding out how many offers you can get without an intention of accepting one). I may have been a bit earlier to judge, so tell me, what is the reason you do that (i.e applying for +600 companies, instead of < 40).
I know this is a off topic, but this part is what interest me from your rant 😅
@cho-uc Because if you read the rant carefully, I have explained WHY I am applying so many places instead of <20.
I am not a dev and things are different for folks who are not a dev.
It's a matter of perspective and sorry I cannot explain how to look at things beyond a particular angle.
