Pursue an internship or double down on career search?

If you had the savings to survive either, would you put 10-12 hours of your day on applying everywhere, or split that with an internship?

I am getting close to wrapping up my portfolio. It’s a good one, with intermediate Typescript React, Express Postgres applications that solve actual problems.

Despite that I think the cleaner path in this job market is to take the internship. I think an internship is so strong that it makes getting a job inevitable.

Yes, an internship should make it much easier to get a job. It should pay though? Even a very small wage? But anyway, if you can afford to do an internship, it’ll help you far more than sitting on your own, producing self-directed projects and applying for jobs based on them.
