I’m job hunting for Software Engineer roles in the Toronto, Canada area. For context, I graduated in April 2020 when Covid became the worlds problem and many were let go. I didn’t want to stay unemployed so took a role as a PM. I’ve recently revamped my portfolio and am ready to start applying for roles again. Any software engineers have any tips for me as I embark on this journey? Thanks in advance!

Should I shave for an upcoming interview? Might be a dated question, but I haven’t interviewed since law school where the going wisdom that you go clean shaven for interviews. I’m still only a few years out but certainly no longer a college kid and have a normal, full beard which I have been litigating with just fine. Being only 28 though I’m a little cognizant that it might come off disrespectful or unprepared to keep the beard. Thoughts/insults?

WWYD? I have an offer for the same job I currently do, but at a different B4 and (hopefully) with better leadership. Still interviewing and was told today that my candidacy was very strong for the position I really want at company 2, but they won't be able to make a decision for at least 2 weeks. I have to provide a decision for the first offer soon and have stretched out the timeline as much as possible. Take the gamble? Go for the job I really want vs. anything to get out of a bad situation
