I have been working on projects and felt a lot better than when I first started 2 years ago. I was able to gain interviews before the pandemic. Now, I modified my Resume and Portfolio to make it more shinny but not able to gain even 1 interview. I have been putting my portfolio link in my job application and recruiters been visiting it but was not able to pay their attention to contact me for an interview. I feel like dropping jewelries on the table but no one is get excited about it neither the resume. Specially, my portfolio is well built with both Front-End and Back-End. I have used ton of different technologies including React, Node, Bootstrap, P5.js(library used with React Component), ipData, VanillaJS, RESTful API, Adobe PS, Firebase, and MongoDB. I have been applying to only Junior web jobs. The projects that I did is not even considered as beginner level projects. When I did interviews before, the recruiter told me over the phone that I will be under training for 3 weeks. Why companies are so serious about the experience if every single new hire will get trained under that junior web job? And what am I missing here to fix?
I would say 90 percent of companies who listing Junior web jobs, they expect you to have at least 2-3 years of experience. The question is, why do we have mid senior level if junior level have to have experience too?
