I graduated with a Master’s degree in Physics last May 2015 and have been trying to get a job in software and web development. It’s been tough with my resume only listing academic research and teaching positions. All of my research has been in computational physics (coding in Fortran with Linux) but even highlighting that on my resume/cover letters hasn’t helped much.
I have always been really into coding and I’m extremely excited about Free Code Camp and the opportunity to build an organized portfolio, which I’m hoping will make that difference I’ve been needing to get my foot in the door. I’ve sorta put the resume sending on hold til I get further a long the FCC curriculum (right now I’m finishing up my personal portfolio site), but I’m not really sure how to know when would be a good time to get back at it…
I was just wondering if anybody has had a similar experience? Or any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks in advance! Cheers!
