I am currently employed at a web/mobile software development firm making $12.02 an hour. I have been there for over 7 months so far, and this is my very first developer role.
I am wanting to pursue other opportunities, but when I search on LinkedIn, just about all the jobs have 30+ applicants. Many have over 50+, and I have also seen plenty with 150+ and even 200+ applicants.
I am skilled in a multitude of technologies.
I recently applied for a rare position in my area. I live in a smaller city and this was the only Angular frontend position I have seen in a long time. They denied my application without even considering me for an interview! Come to find out, there were 39 applicants!
How am I supposed to compete against that!?!?!
I only posess a high school diploma, but as I said, I have over 7 months professional work experience and over 4 years of overall independent learning experience.
I am starting to believe I chose the wrong profession.
