After many months of applying, I saw a LinkedIn post from my now colleague advertising that the company needs interns and sent him a message.

Love it. Do you remember how did the message look like? Did you have to send a portfolio or something?

I think I just said "I'm interested in this position". It was the start of a holiday so I forgot about it after a couple of days, then I got an email from him asking me for more info. I only sent my CV which included some of my projects and my GitHub which I don't think anyone checked 😂 a couple of months later I was officially hired.

Haha I'm sure they looked at your Github and projects. Thanks for sharing, that's pretty useful!
