You're retarded.
I have only 3 years of experience as a front-end developer from a shitty company, plus some shitty Microsoft certificate, and getting fired was the bets thing that happened to me.
I'm getting around 5 job offers a day on LinkedIn, mostly with good pay and relocation costs being paid off, only accept the remote projects at 50-80 EUR/h. I'm earning around 2500-3000 EUR a week and honestly most of the projects I'm getting are so easy that in reality I'm just working maybe 50% of the time I'm paid for.
It's an extremely easy market to get into, basically like living life on cheat codes.

That's probably all true, but for anyone with half a brain it opens up paths you may have never thought about before. Some of us had to find our way through decades of being told waging until you die is the only path.

Pretty much this. I’ve applied to well over 200 jobs now. It’s tough to get a full time/ part time job in academia OR industry. People tell me to remove my PhD from my resume but when employers see my experiences, they know I’m lying when I tell them I worked as a lowly “technician” instead.

And everyone learns it in STEM degrees. If you go in actual mathematics, you're learning stuff with very limited applicability. Nobody gives a shit about topology in the industry. Most people with science or engineering PhD working the industry barely use math either these days. Everything is mostly done in CAD and simulation software.

We need Mechanics , Electricians and craftsmen you fucking incels studying College drop outs.
If you're in your 20s to 25s do this:
Go work construction or industry maintenance in a factory or elsewhere , save money , stay with parents save groceries and other uslss shit , invest everything you save in stocks bonds and etf's also some crypto. Do this for atleast 10 to 15 years but not passing 35yo of age.
Save until you got 300k in assets and then buy some condos and let the dividends pay those condos and rent them out so you generate cash flow.

I work in intelligence and I went through the same struggle for like 1 and a half years. The biggest things that helped me were relocating to a better area for finding work, applying to at least 10 jobs a day, and actually taking the time to craft custom cover letters (because apparently recruiters actually do give a shit about them).

I'm not gonna say "don't learn to code", because it can be useful, but if you're going to learn it just make sure you're doing it to supplement your existing skillset, not replace it. You really want to be competing for basic bitch junior dev positions with the hordes of recent IT grads right now? You have a PhD and don't need to subject yourself to something that will probably be outsourced to a pajeet for pennies on the dollar within 5 years.
