1) Network a lot. It’ll help 2) Find a list of VC firms and cold email them all. You’ll find this wherever startups post on the internet 3) Get upto speed on latest startup news. 4) It may be easier to pick an industry area and target it so you can show you have expertise in one domain 5) You will boost your chances if you move to SF (this is a theory because so many startups and VCs are there). Other strategy is to go local and apply to firms in your area since others don’t want to move there 6) Interviews vary. But I had one where they asked me to write a memo on an investment thesis about one of their portfolio companies 7) Read about how VCs invest and the narratives behind their portfolios 8) Join Twitter. And follow VCs. You’ll learn a lot

After interviewing for a software engineering role and passing, I was (rather shadily) tossed into an entirely different role, and I can no longer put SE on my resume. My goal is to become a senior software engineer and eventually make the jump to development within web3. With the current path I am on, I would actually consider it to be detrimental to landing a development job in the future but it will look bad for leaving a role this early. I lose valuable skills everyday. What should I do?

This is how I handled My 90 days Notice period and it worked for me. Step1: created a naukari account and resume with fake name. Step2: updated naukari as last working day is in a week (every week I update my LWD) Step3: Attend interviews and gain confidence. At first I got rejected in many interviews but I started to clear one by one after preparing previous interview questions. Step4: when I gained confidence, I resigned and started looking for job with real name. And cleared.
