Hi everyone! I'm doing Android development for almost 2 years, but in my current company I'm doing backend development in GoLang sometimes too. Also I'm trying to apply for a big tech companies, so that I can stay there for a long period of time and gain some experience, but until now there is no responses from recruiters or rejections for an interviews. I'm doing LeetCode for a 2-3 month everyday and I feel like it's just a waisting of time.

Should I keep solving LeetCode, or should I quit it? My current company is not bad to be honest, but I feel like it's not enough for me. How can I indicate, is it a time to move on, or stay in my current position? Thanks!

    Unless you enjoy Leetcode (I assume you don't.. :P), I would stop.

    If you want to switch jobs, keep applying for various roles, but try different avenues like networking, Taro Premium, or shared interests in tech/open source.

    When you start getting interviews, then you should grind Leetcode hard.

    A few ways to evaluate whether to stay or leave at your company:

    • Do you feel like you're still learning?
    • Do the people around you invest in you? Do you have enough people to learn from?
    • Do you already have a name brand company on your resume? How much would your profile improve if you spent a year at a high profile company?
    • Are there any big payouts (equity, bonus, etc) that you want to wait for?
