Looking to switch jobs. Making around $35/hr and what once was 40hrs/wk has dwindled into only 2 or 3 days a week, management isn’t going to offer me a full time position, despite the fact that I have been working at this company for 1.5 years as a Software Engineer. I’m not happy at my current role, I’m burnt out and overworked when they actually ask me to come in. Any advice you all have for a recent graduate looking for a job with few projects and only one previous job/YOE in the industry?

Burned out and overworked, for a part time job? That peaked at 40 hour weeks?

You arent overworked or burned out. You are bored and demoralized. Find a better job.

Remote vs in person for software developers in their early career. I started my career in 2021 fully remote. After the office opened again in 2022, I was able to learn a lot about the system from other people in the office and solve bugs faster. Without a doubt made my job easier. Lots of my colleagues still work from home in 2022. I can’t see why they are making it harder for themselves on purpose. I’m fairly confident they can afford to get to the office because they have teslas and shit.

Things that come to my mind are government-related, military, some fintech. Sciences have great need of computing, and can have big impact, but income is less clear.
