How Patrick FINALLY Got His First Developer Position


After graduating a coding bootcamp, it took Patrick 8 frustrating months to finally get his first developer position. He shared his whole job search journey. We dove into his day to day; job search strategy - what worked and what didn't; his frustrating interview experiences; and what finally helped him stand out from the rest of the applicants to FINALLY get his first developer position. Congrats Patrick! Can you relate to his frustrations?
