I'm 26 and only ever had 1 job in my life. It was software-related work with a consulting company and I worked on 2 projects under them. I was cut from both within 8 months - second one due to covid. I felt very bad after second cut and wanted to avoid being assigned to a call center type project, so I quit and drove back to my home state. This was in April and I haven't been able to find a new job. I've gotten discouraged and applying to positions less and less. I tried networking and no leads have panned out. I'm trying for a software engineer role and working on my skills but I'm slowing on that too due to all this. What else can I do? I think my worst mistake was quitting as my professional experience is over a year but less than 2 and also not specific (first project was in a testing role, second in a data engineer type one). I feel like I'm in some weird in-between zone. Thanks in advance for all your thoughts.
