Job apply suggestions for coding boot camp graduates
2 min read
1. Lack of study and professional experiences
For a career changer and coding boot camp graduate, lack of study and professional experiences will be the most challenge we will face. That will leads to no response or rejection before the first interview.
Since we chose boot camp as the way we change our careers, we saved time and money for learning at University or College, we will spend more time on job searching. Personal projects and volunteer experiences will help us shorten this process.
2. There are too many tech skills to learn
3. Keep applying
Apply for 10 positions a day. 100 applications will lead you to 10 interviews, and 10 interviews will lead you to 1 offer. This suggestion is from a friend, it fits my situation.
4. Expand your network
Networks will help you get a job, even if you didn't do well in all the above aspects.
