|Been hunting for a month, probably 10-20 applications. 1 interview, haven't heard back yet.|
Am I being too impatient? How long did it take you to get an offer for your first full-time position in dev? What should I expect?
Thanks for the feedback so far!
- I'm applying for work in Vancouver, BC
- I have friends in tech; one works at a company that's aggressively hiring and he gave me a reference. Unfortunately not even an interview from them
- I have some internships/student work experience in dev, but they're lower tier (unheard of companies)
-Been going to meetups/hiring fairs. I've had good discussions with engineers there, hand them my resume, but probably gets lost in a pile/black hole of HR
