Episode 404: Podcast not found ;)
Cassidy recently joined the Great Resignation, leaving one job for another, a move prompted by pandemic era reflection and the new normal of remote work…without travel. Ceora took the opposite trajectory, moving into tech after the pandemic shuttered a job in events. On today’s episode we talk about how this unique moment in the history of labor is playing out for developers and those in the tech industry.
Developers are leading the Great Resignation, according to some reports. Others feel developers aren’t resigning, so much as seizing the moment to find better opportunities.

Pitches for the blog
Thanks to our lifeboat badge winner of the week, Umer, for explaining how to: align an anchor to the rightgreat resignation, hiring
I want to speak a little about my experience.
The last few months I’ve been trying to get a new job, I’ve must have made like 500 applications (and I’m probably lowballing it…).
I had dozens of coding challenges and interviews, and still nothing…
I have 5 years of experience and basically, the only thing I’m asking is a visa sponsor (I’m in Brazil and I WANT to relocate).
My experience is in a non-tech department and the stuff I’ve made is all internal, my portfolio is still growing and I will even take a junior position.
But either I have “too much experience” for junior positions or “not enough experience” for anything else.
I know developers with 10 years plus making less per year than just the raises you’re talked about in the episode.
And hell, after so many months, I gotta say my salary expectations are low…
The cost of a visa is a fraction of what a developer makes, and yet many companies are willing to die blaming the “great resignation” instead of looking to bring foreign talents.
My other “problem” is probably what you can see in the interactive interview I made:
Because I’ve made even that, and I know stories of people who got jobs with less than that.
So yeah… maybe it’s easy if you’re already there or have the right visas.
Not so much depending on where you are.
