New coding job not meeting expectations

Im a junior backend developer in python and JavaScript. I was offered a coding job in linked-in and accepted it. At the first day of work, i was amazed by the cute offices and nice working stations. The problem went later, i realized my job was not about coding, but about project management. Apparently, my recruiter wanted experienced programmers to work as project managers, as told by the client. I love coding and data, but i can't do that on work, only management, sending e-mails and going to meetings.

Sounds to me like they pulled a bait-and-switch. I don’t know about you, but I would have a hard time trusting people who did this. It’s great that you found a new job. I’m sure it wasn’t easy. I’m sorry that you’re a victim of unethical hiring practices like this. No one should have to deal with blatant lies of omission when looking for a position!

I hope you can find something that helps you grow.
