I actually did FCC a while back and got this job a while back as well, but decided to share my journey to landing not only my first coding job, but my first real job. By the way, when I say FCC helped prevent me from getting deported I am referring to the limited time international students have to look for jobs after graduating college (and obtaining their OPT).
I applied to over 300 jobs and got ignored from most of them and maybe heard back from no more than 10 companies, most of which rejected me. I had one interview prior to my current job and you can guess how that went. I was about a week out from flying back home and eventually taking a job in Singapore at a large multinational company (which I did not want), but was somehow able to get an internship before that changing the course of my life.
I wrote an article about this and I hope it motivates you to continue to keep persevering through tough times.
