How many jobs did you apply to and interview for before receiving an offer?

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve applied for positions at 21 companies and had interviews with 6, still interviewing with 3 of those 6. I haven’t received any feedback from the companies that I did interview with but was not offered a position. I know that I will land somewhere, eventually!

After my grad, I had about 1.5 YOE in HR.

After my post graduation I wanted to apply for a technical role and enter ERP consulting.

I had about 1200+ applications in 7 months before I landed my first contract role which led me to a full time position. But just for context, I also required a work permit in this country and that was a problem for a lot of the firms that did show interest in me.

Just thought I'd share.

Ive always struggled my whole life because I lack self confidence.

It’s funny because some people (family and other) are proud of me and take me as an example (continued)
