Took me around a year and a half of really learning the fundamentals, working on several projects, and generally preparing before landing my first job. Biggest thing is sprucing up your resume to show youโ€™re able to build things. Started with several interviews and then quickly started getting the hang of things and landed a couple offers at a startup and a mid size company.

I hear of some people applying to hundreds of companies. Was that your experience as well ?
