On 2017 I had the opportunity to go 100% into learning programming. I had to quit my job to be a stay home dad and I took the opportunity to pursue what I always was interested in; programming. I had learned on my own watching youtube videos the basic HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap, but now I was looking into a career change. 37 years old looking for a career change, looking to do exciting and creative things, and interacting with others who share the excitement of doing this kind of work for a living. Well, I graduated in June of 2018 as Full Stack Web Developer with Python as a back-end programming language. Since then, I have applied to more than 140 plus jobs and with only two interviews. Unfortunately, as time passed it made a hole in our finance. Every application was applied with the hope of being the one the would get up us over the hump.
All this to say, I have applied and possibly start working on what I used to do before quitting; Pest Control. P.S. I am still learning by taking these courses like ES6, React, and Node. Some projects as well… slowly but surely.
Has anyone gone through this situation and had to go back to the old job?
