Unpaid Internship To Full Time Developer | Nikki’s Job Search Journey


The last time I had Nikki on my podcast, she had graduated a coding bootcamp and was working at an unpaid internship. I decided to bring her back on and see how her job search journey has been going. Spoiler: She just started a new full-time role as a developer! We talked about the relatable struggles of her job search as well as what finally made her stand out from the rest. Maybe her story resonates with you and can provide a little extra help along the way.
