I know you're not supposed to "spray and pray" when applying for jobs but I find it therapeutic to spam those apply buttons. Also job ads have become so long that I apply and only read them if I'm accepted for an interview.

    Got an answer from one company that they rejected me because they're "looking for a long-term collaboration and they are worried about my tenure.". My good people it's not my fault I've been laid off twice in the past two years.

    Thing with this is if you're mostly happy where you are and just casually taking a peek now and then, that's all good but when one is between work for whatever reason, you probably can't stuff around waiting two weeks to maybe hear back from someone

    I got laid off just before the pandemic started, so obviously to even get an interview during all that was quite tough. Eventually I wrote a bot that went and applied for anything with the following keywords on the 4 biggest job sites. Made it configurable so I could add new skills


    Java Developer

    Junior Java Developer


    Junior C# Developer

    C# Developer


    .NET Developer

    Junior .NET Developer

    Junior Programmer


    Junior Software Developer

    Software Developer

    Junior Software Engineer

    Software Engineer



    Web dev

    One place actually reached out to check if I knew what I was doing cause I'd applied to their job on multiple sites

    Answer that company that your bot, that you've written in a few minutes, actually applied, not you =D

    @scor legit thought of doing the same thing just because HR can suck a mile of dicks.
