I lucked into my first development job, I had just left my previous job in coffee without any specific goals in mind, reached out to some acquaintances for some mentoring and they eventually hired me to work in their startup. I didn’t start in development but I’ve slowly moved over. Circumstances are leading me to look for another job, but I’m not sure where to start. I’d consider this my first real software job hunt.
I’d love to read other people’s stories of how they got their first job in software! Maybe there will be some wisdom for people like me.
How did you find your first dev job?
Was/Is it remote, on-site, something else?
What was your experience/qualifications before you got the job?
Did you actually meet all the listed requirements before you applied?
Tell your story! I’d love to read it!
