Same here my friend. It sucks, so nerve wracking. But exercise def helps. Also keeping a very negative outlook on your chances so that it can only be positive news is my unhealthy method

I've been attempting to help some folks get their first job in Tech, either from other industries or new grads. I have a few questions for my fellow tech folks - 1) Do you actually hire TRUE entry level folks with no job experience (other than maybe a degree or boot camp certifications, etc.)? 2) If so, what do you look for in a resume/cover letter that would help someone stand out and get them at least an initial phone interview? I posted this in Tech but curious what women here have to say:)
