A job search is typically an opaque and solitary activity. By learning about others' job searches, we gain insight into which sources and approaches may lead us toward better results. Julia shares details and data from her two software engineering job searches, one as a college new grad, and the other as a senior engineer working remotely. In examining the outcomes of her several job search methods, she offers guidance on how tech workers at different stages in their careers can set themselves up for greatest success in their job searches.
