You are looking for a job but you do not know anyone. You see all of these developers getting their programming jobs before you, and you simply start to ask yourself:
How come that they get these programming jobs and I'm able to get none?

So you are looking for a new programming job, where do you go first? Indeed? Monster? Hacker News?

You sent all of these programming resumes but you're able to get no responses back. What do you do?

This happened to me. I sent all of those resumes but I was able to get NO RESPONSES back.

This is when I decided to go that extra mile. To finally bypass HR. And that's how I got my programming job.

I reached out to the CEO, hiring managers, CTO of a lot of companies and sent them this email:

"I saw your post on Hacker News Who’s Hiring June 2016. I read up on the company and I was really excited at the fact that you guys are trying to change the fashion industry by trying to offer high quality clothing to people all around the world at a cheaper price. I was wondering if you could talk to me more about your time there and why you love it?

Here is a link to a project I made for you. I did not know python or react, but I wanted to learn because I love to continuously learn and improve my skill set. I hosted it on AWS also using Ec2 instance and cloudfront.

Also, are you hiring for junior full stack engineers?

Best,

Antonio"

In this video, I'll teach you how you can do the same so that you can finally land your programming job.
