How I went from HR professional to the vanilla JS guy

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Tim Bourguignon from the DevJourney Podcast about my path from HR pro to vanilla JS guy.

On the show, we talked about my path from HR blogging to hobby developer to “oh wait my job sucks I’d rather do web development.” I shared my tips and tricks for navigating that process, including how I found open roles, how I created a resume that got me interviews, how I failed dozens of interviews in my first year, and how I actually landed my first job.

We also dug into what it’s like to be a dev with ADHD, and how I transformed my side-hustle into a full time business.

If any of this sounds interesting, you can listen to the whole conversation here.
