I'm a college grad with a bachelor's degree in software development, but have not been able to land a job since 2016. I applied to a few companies only to get an email reply that the company has decided to pursue other candidates or that I do not have the skills they are looking for in the position. I get on average about 3-4 emails a day with job opportunities, however, most of them are for senior positions. I consider myself at the junior level never having held a professional software development job before. I feel that rejection is a part of trying to get on with a company and that I have not applied to enough places. But after having been turned down quite a few times, I eventually had to resort to a job outside of that field so that I can still afford to pay bills and take care of myself.
