Good point, definitely. I'll work on that and make sure we can all put up good recommendations for junior devs.

I believe everyone should be able to show something, even if junior. Maybe you were teaching assistant at uni, or have a certification, or have participated in competitions. I'll put more examples in another post. Thanks!

My brother usually got his "schoolwork" done in the first few weeks of class, and used the spare time to build stuff like a cryptocurrency arbitrage system and refactor it to support concurrency, all this before he even had his first job. Lots of his projects were like that.

Barely even needed a damn resume.

Suffice to say, he got a job pretty quick after school, a position that was on par with people who had already been working there for years, and is considered a technical leader by his peers.
