I’ve been searching for a web developer job for the past 3 months and I have sent around 70+ applications and only gotten 2 interviews: 1 phone screen and 1 in-person. I struggle to find more than 10 jobs per week to apply to (that I meet >=50% of qualifications).
Is this a sign that I might need to relocate to an area with more tech jobs? How many jobs do you normally apply to per week and how qualified are you for these jobs? And is it even an advantage to be in a large tech hub? I frequently see stories of developers struggling to find jobs even in major tech hubs, because while they find far more jobs to apply to, they also face far more competition, and the numbers advantage seems to be nullified.
TL:DR; How do I know if I live in an area with too few tech jobs and need to relocate?
