You’ve been wanting it, working for it, and now the time has come. It’s time to get that dev job.

But getting a job in tech can feel like a job itself.

It can be confusing, overwhelming, and, at times, absolutely draining. Part of it is because job searching sucks. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

We’ll walk you through how to plan, prep, and apply to jobs to launch your dev career.

Each week, you’ll get a guided worksheet to help you work towards a concrete goal to get a job in tech.

But I should warn you – this isn’t a passive experience.

To get that career, you’ll have to get out of your comfort zone, roll up your sleeves, and put in the time and effort.

So if this is the year you’re ready to finally make it happen, sign up for a track and let’s get to work.

This is the year you finally do it.

This is the year you get that dev job.
