Companies Are Hiring
I just did a quick Crunchbase search for you.
789 companies are:
a) actively hiring
b) no layoffs reported past 90 days
c) received a funding round in the past year
Why not focus on those companies?
Find ones that excite you and create something substantial just for them.
You've got this!
