Hey Megan,

Thanks for sharing your experiences after 180 days of searching for a job. If you're looking for your first role as a software engineer, it's definitely a journey (and a tough one, at that) to land your first gig, especially if you are coming from a less traditional background.

Keep fighting the good fight, and take care of yourself during these times. Feel free to reach out if I can help at all - I'm 5 years into my career in software, started as a self-taught developer, and constantly thinking about where my career can go from here.

Cheers,
Jon

Megan
