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.

Congratulations brother, I also always dreamed of living in Europe. Can you share your portfolio or resume which helped you in landing the job so I can take inspiration from you. Thank you so much and congratulations on your great achievement ♥️☺️

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).

Hey Yew, thank you so much for your quick response, and thanks for sharing with me your resume on my email id. I always dreamed of living in the UK, France, Germany, etc. I'm really very happy about your success and you really inspired me a lot. Hope one day I will also be able to move to Europe. It will be great if we can stay connected, I will send you a connection request on LinkedIn, hope you will accept it. I will love to connect with you. Thank you once again for sharing your resume and for helping me

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 :)
