Outside the Interview

Let's cover what the opportunities are if you are not getting a full-time job as a newbie.

Contract jobs

While you are waiting to land a full-time job, you can also pick up some contract jobs to get some practice coding for money. A lot of people get their start doing projects for friends or relatives, like a site for an aunt or an app for the local cafe there. All of it becomes a relevant experience for your resume. There are also sites that connect you to short-term jobs, like Upwork or Toptal, but you may have a tougher go of it as a newer programmer.
