Discussion on: How many applications did it take for you to find your first dev job?

I got lucky with my first job, had maybe 5 - 10 applications out there and found a job. But for my second job, we moved, and I must have gone on about 20 - 30 interviews over the course of 3 months to find something.

I ended up having to take a source control admin job and then from within work my way back to being a full-time dev.
