Hi there. I dropped out after 3 y of studying in university in Russia and moved to US. Im trying to find my first software engineer job. I know some other programming languages and technologies other than Java. One of my last projects is this website (Spring Boot + ReactJS). And im wondering is my background enough to land a first job?

So it's kinda tool for phone fix stores. Inventory, parts orders and waivers tracking. Registration and login are made with Spring Security. JWT for authentication. User can have only one store, but can find other store by unique code. Each store has waivers list, orders list and inventory list. Backend : Spring Boot (REST API), Front : ReactJS. Link to GitHub account

Please post a link that actually opens.

There may be 100 applicants for this job. Whoever is shortlisting candidates will want to get rid of 90 of them in 90 minutes. If you submit a broken link, you will be high up in the list of the ninety got rid of. You will also need a good explanation for not finishing your course.

. . . opens with 404 writ large on it.

Kindly believe it when people tell you a link won't open or something like that.

They ar etalking about teh link to the github repo. The correct link is here.

The project is fine. Maybe sure you describe it well on your CV. In the first pass, people screening resumes don't have time to look at projects. They focus on skimming the resume/CV to decide which to look into further.

Well done finding it; I can see the difference now you pointed it out.
It would be a good idea for OP to get a friend to review his resumé/CV. Checking that all the links open would only be a small part of that process.

If you speak algorithms/ data sturcture and have some strong personal projects you are good to go.
Make sure your github profile is strong. Also same goes with linkedin.
