First Community Post

Hello! I am new to the CodeNewbie community, but not new to the podcast! I have been listening to the podcast for years, and it inspired me to take the next step and get into coding. I recently graduated a Full Stack Web Development bootcamp and have begun the scary yet exciting search for my first job in tech! So far it has been a bit bumpy, so I have found myself coming back to the CodeNewbie Community in hopes of keeping myself on track and accountable for learning, so I can nail my technical interviews. Please feel free to reach out if you have questions about my experience in a coding bootcamp, have some tips/tricks for me, or just want to say hello!

Happy coding!

Hi Emily! Welcome. I'm in a data science bootcamp right now (about one month in). Job searching can be tough, but there are a lot of folks willing to help.

  • Danny Thompson has a free LinkedIn series on his YouTube channel that has helped a lot of people. He also has a Discord community and hosts a lot of Twitter spaces around the topic of getting your first job in tech. If you haven't done so yet, definitely check him out.
  • There's a notion page called here to help that lists people willing to provide free mentorship, resume tips, etc.

You'll find something as long as you keep going.

All the best!
