    Looking for a software developer job
    Hi,

    I just graduated with a computer science degree in July 2019. I am currently looking for a software developer role (based in London) however as you’re all aware, Corona virus has been spreading quite fast in London (and workdwide). Therefore whilst I have phone/video interviews only (as opposed to face to face) I’ve been told by the interviewers that there’s no guarantee that new recruits will be appointed at this point in time due to the uncertainty of corona virus.

    I was planning to attend conferences and dev hackathons and other career related workshops held by large companies to learn new skills. I also like to attend social meetups. However due to corona they’ve all been cancelled as you’d expect. Can anyone suggest things I can be doing while I am unemployed in order to increase my chances of being hired as a software developer?

    Also, what are the chances of getting hired for freelance work as a fresh grad?

    Look at websites that are offering small gigs and build up your portfolio with your skills and see if you can start with that. This is an unprecedented time and everyone is being cautious. However, this, like everything else will pass in time and things will return to normal. Use this opportunity to work on your projects that you can demonstrate to potential employers and clients in the future.

    As someone who's been in the industry for 20+ years, let me know if I can provide any other help.

    Thanks for the reply. What do you mean by small gigs? There’re projects I feel equipped enough to do but I fearthere are others who are more experienced who’ll be outsourced with these.

    Visit your local craigslist and the Gigs section to see things people want, like a website created for a local business or other things. You can offer your services at a better rate than those who are more experienced and as long as you are able to finish the work, that will help you build your portfolio.

    Check out these websites and go from there:
