How I feel looking for my first job explained with code.

Hi my name is Juan and I'm a computer science student looking for my first job as a developer, so far I'm doing good in the technical interviews, but when they ask me about my experience I feel like this:

function getFirstJob(programmer) {
  if(programmer.hasExperience) {
    return "you are hired"
  }
  getExperience(programmer)
}

function getExperience(programmer) {
  getFirstJob(programmer)
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And you know what happens when you run getFirstJob(). So far I couldn't get out of that loop. I would like to get advice or your comments if you are going through a similar situation. Thanks for reading, have a great day :)
