First of all, I would like to give you a little bit of background information about me. I graduated in May 2020 with a bachelor’s in CS. However, I did not have any internships. To compensate for the lack of this, I have managed to obtain four certificates from FCC so far (responsive web design, data structures and algorithms in JS, front end libraries, and data visualization). I am currently working on the courses “APIs and Microservices” and the one that involves quality assurance.
Much to my dismay, I have found that many companies are not hiring entry-level software engineers. I even took a break from applying to places (so I could focus on FCC), but alas, many companies do not want recent college graduates to be unemployed for too long. At the same time, the world is getting ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic, so they should be understanding as well.
You see, this is a bit of a catch-22 situation. In light of all of these details, what should I do?
