very good interview, persistence is definitely key, I am currently applying for UX UI Product Designer role in NYC and getting rejected every single time, I'm struggling financially and i have to hustle and bustle to try to make the rent and pay bills it's really tough. I feel like giving up at times, but so my family is depending on me, so I keep sending out resumes and going to interviews, doing more projects to update my online portfolio. thanks 😊 for the episode
