Haha, I remember that feeling!

From one teacher-turned-programmer to another: enjoy the new career and the lack of grading, parent phone calls, and parent-teacher interviews!

There seem to be so many teacher-turned-programmers around here! I think that is even @QuincyLarson’s background!

Yeah, super inspiring! Glad to see you’re back and sticking with it. What are you working on these days?

It’s good to have you with us.

Yes - it’s all about putting yourself out there. This is a high number of applications, but not unusual. It is to some extent a number’s game.

You might enjoy this article by someone from the freeCodeCamp community who applied to nearly 300 jobs and toward the end, got 8 job offers. Really helpful perspective:

#24

I felt like applying for jobs was more a ritual, to help me consistently evaluate where I was and how I was progressing.

Truth be told, nether of the offers I got were because of a resume, but instead connections from networking and working on projects with experienced devs! Once someone knows you can work, then they will find you a job!

#25

Awesome stuff! Congrats on getting the job.

Definetly going to check out Meetup after this.

#26

I’d also check for local slack channels, too!

#27

Thanks for sharing the inspiration and the journey to get there!
