Two years ago I was one of those guys living in a student’s house, taking clothes to the washing machine together with roommates (it’s cheaper) and spending days on the web searching for a job. Starting this journey around Christmas I was almost right expecting to get an offer as a Christmas gift. Turned out, as a next Christmas gift, since it took me some 9 months to finally get an offer. But let’s start from the… start.
