So I gave myself a challenge called October Hunt. The challenge is to write as much cover letter as I can and get a developer job in October.
On average, I'd send an application every 5-15 minutes. As I'm using a self-made template, about 70% of the things I write would always be the same.
Today, instead of continuing in the old way, which is customizing my template for each company, I created a (ReactJS) app that sped up my process 3x times.
The app is called Smart Cover Letter. It's not live yet. I'll probably share it globally after getting a job. Until then, I will also connect it to a (MongoDB / Firebase) database so that I won't have to record every single company I apply to on an Excel spreadsheet.
Once again, I fell in love with coding and problem-solving.
Thanks for reading, stay safe!
