Be brave and to to all of the companies and people that you can find that work with software and see if you might be able to help them
Best of luck! Please keep me posted. I would like to follow your progress!
I would suggest upskilling and trying to learn technologies that are "popular" right now. Personally, I have used YouTube, LinkedIn Learning, and Udemy to learn some new skills that employers are looking for. Lastly, I have also found that getting a certification can go a long way. What I mean by that is, if you can afford to take a cert exam, go for it as it will payoff in the long run.
In regards to finding a part-time job, I would second Hanleigh's answer. LinkedIn has helped me find my previous jobs. I would also recommend reaching out to friends/acquaintances that are in the same industry as you or that work for companies you are interested in. My last piece of advice would be to just apply to all relevant job postings, it may be scary but it will definitely increase your chances of landing an opportunity.
Hope this little piece of advice can help! Keep us updated!
