You should also figure out why you had such a low response rate. Maybe you were not selling yourself in the best way, or you were mass applying with no references and a generic resume/cover letter. I find fewer, more intentional applications tailored to the company in question >> mass impersonal applications.

Prior to joining my company, I only got 3 responses from 300+ applications. So I was wondering if 1 year experience will give me a leg up in the tech industry

300+....???? I applied to like 3 jobs and got one hahaha. That’s impressive, you’re an animal ;)

As a software engineer? You need referrals and then a ton of leetcoding!

Type of experience and skill set matter more than how many years you’ve been working. You should be asking “what kinds of problems do I want to solve” and “what environment/culture will most contribute to my personal/career growth”. If you have a solid technical foundation, recruiters will come knocking.
