The hunt for my first job was a long journey. It started in late September 2018, and extended to mid February 2019.
In the first phase interviews from September to November 2018, I contacted around 6 companies and was shortlisted and accepted by one of them.
Generally, things went well and I was en route to start my first job some time in early January 2019 after a short probation at a company.
But a situation cropped up and I decided to move on and continue my job search, which saw me applying to at around 20 more companies.
