I’ve seen 1st hand newcomers get hired from our local Houston user group.
Not by showing up once, twice or thrice (I hate that word, BTW).
Rather, many, many times.
I’m curious to hear if there’s been any newcomers that have shown up consistently for more than say 12-18 months and have not landed a position (of any kind).
I don’t necessarily want this to be a piece of advise that I consistently offer, if it doesn’t hold true a majority of the time (i.e. thrice out of 4 times).
