You are exaggerating, OP has almost no experience in software development. And it is never that easy to get a job even if you are good. Nowadays it is more like 2-3 phone interviews, then a whole day series of face-to-face interviews, then HR interview if you are lucky. All of this takes up LOTS of time.

He's not exaggerating ALL that much.. my recent job search in SF went that way ( PhD in Physics, web programmer).

If you know the right people it can be that easy, I agree. However for someone with no experience and no connections in the industry this would be hard.
