I finally achieved my goal, but again, it’s not the end.

I’ve always wanted to live in Europe, especially in France. To speed up the process of reaching my dream, I challenged myself to create a portfolio and get a developer job in October.

On 20 October, I received an approval email from my current CEO. It was really one of the best days of my life. You can’t imagine how happy I was! I love the team so much because everyone is so friendly and welcoming.

My next big goal is not related to coding, but I still would like to share it with you — I want to get the French long-stay VISA in January.

Stay safe, stay tuned.

No problem, Ram! That's a great dream! If you get a job in Germany, it would become easy for you to move around Europe (my bro told me that haha). For sure we can. You're welcome! Don't hesitate to ask me for tips or help. Wish you all the best :)

I think my resume doesn't help me much. I applied for 200+ jobs on AngelList in less than 2 weeks. I think the most important tips to get a job is to apply as much as you can (with your portfolio and value-based cover letter attached).
