@DialMforMara so I begged on here and created a Viral Marketing Campaign™ and actually now work as a freelance software dev! So yeah you can get a job via fedi

@roxxers @DialMforMara i haven’t managed to get hired yet, but i’ve made good contacts at tech companies which lead to several promising interviews.

@Sapphicgiraffic @DialMforMara I didn't really get any industry connections but I make decent money and will be fine for now uwu

@roxxers @DialMforMara i wish i could work remote/freelance but i don’t have a good home environment to work in :/

@Sapphicgiraffic @DialMforMara Some of the benefits I get from working from home is I get to choose hours and when I feel I can work. And listen to iclandic bdsm anarcho-techno without raising eyebrows due to music videos.

Does come with downsides as well


Working from home is also contributing to my depression, unfortunately. I need to be able to go to work and come home from it, and maybe even have friends there
