Things I was asked to do while job hunting

I recently had to get a new job. My wife got a residency in another state, and my previous job is going back to in-person.

I have two years’ experience working for a startup on enterprise-scale software. My day job is on the frontend with some backend from open source work.

You get most residencies through “the match.” Prospective residents rank programs they’re most interested in, and the programs rank applicants. On a given date in the spring, you find out if or where you matched.

    This is why for several weeks, I knew we would be in Tennessee, Florida, Indiana or California, but not the specific state.
