Finding any job today (even a developer one) is tough. I've applied to several developer jobs, but have never even gotten to the interview stage. Most of the times I get a rejection e-mail or I never hear back. I've had several people look at my resume and cover letters to see what I can improve upon, but nothing has really changed. I know plenty of devs who have found jobs and it seems what works for them is having a good network and using that connection to get them interviews. I'm starting to realize finding a job is becoming less about the skills you have and more about the people you know.

Sadly, yes :-(
