300 applications! Dude that is serious. I am in the same situation too, though i haven't sent a single application yet. I have been learning web development for almost a year now (I started in September) last year, 5 months full time since lock down started in march but the difference is i haven't sent a single application yet. Still building my portfolio. Unfortunately for us, these are not normal times but we need to keep trying. Hopefully things will turn out for the best.

I am positive things will definitely turn out for the best! I am sure that I will look back at this post and laugh a lot. I am glad I asked this question, because I have received a lot of great feedback and advice! So I don't regret putting myself out there and now I've got a lot of work ahead of me!
