It can be difficult to find a job when you have limited experience.
Getting remote development opportunities with only two to three years of experience can seem like an especially daunting task. The trick is to focus your efforts on your application and seek the positions that will be most fruitful for you. Start by realizing that most job listings are a wish list rather than a list of demands. Employers are hoping to find the perfect candidate, but most will settle for reliable employees. If you're only a couple of years off of the experience requirements, apply for the job anyway. Don't apply for the position that asks for a decade of experience, but a year or two fewer than asked is generally fine. Look for companies that are remote-only or remote-first employers. These businesses have the highest demand for the position and often keep applications on file for quick fill-ins. Craft your cover letter and resume to spotlight your best qualifications. A functional-style resume can draw attention to your skill set rather than your limited work history
