Congratulations Christina!

I absolutely resonate with being told "Oh, you'll find something quickly". Interviewing is hard and nerve-wracking for most people regardless of how many years of technical experience they've accrued.

Every time I was looking for the next gig in the last two decades people told me this "you're good at your job, you will have NO problem finding a new position". It never held true.

We as an industry haven't managed to come up with a shortcut to relay this "good at your job" achievement to total strangers. And that's what interview partners usually are. So without any shortcut we are forced to play puzzle games and solve entirely theoretical problems just to be given a chance of proving ourselves again through new achievements at a new position.
