I got my Bsc in CS from Polytechnic Univ. of Bucharest in 2014. I moved to London in February, this year. I have been struggling to get a job since. My experience with C++ consists of an year and in VoIP and CAD applications. In terms of C++, I only have experience with STL, no QT, no Boost.
Aside of that, I've been learning, more like a passion/hobby about js and Node.js.
I have applied to over 200 jobs, mainly targeting new grad or junior roles, got about 10 answers back, never heard after interview. Successfully interviewed with most of major US tech companies(1 to 1 apply to interview rate), never managed to pass the technical interview.
Should I switch from C++ to js/Node.js ? Why am I getting stuck? How to move out of it? Start a personal project? Which would be the most impactful way to boost my skill/relevance?
