I’m trying so hard to break into iOS developer roles, and I’m landing quite a few interviews, but then when I get to the technical interview I feel like I bomb them 😭

I keep on having recruiters reach out to me for non developer roles and I don’t want to be in sales or doing ux designer roles due to the lack of job security in them…. Idk if it’s wrong but I’ve always thought that the more technical your skills are the higher job security you have, but idk how true that is?
