Drop the requirement for 100% remote. It isn't going to happen. It's already becoming more and more rare as shitty devs abuse it and break the trust for everyone else. You will see the jobs out there still, but they are generally reserved for long time veterans that can be trusted or they are in such high demand the companies will put up with it.

The myth that only 2 or 3 locations have all the programming jobs is just nonsense. I've spent my career working almost exclusively in rural areas, as I hate big cities. There are plenty of programming jobs all over the country. Many Enterprise joints prefer those areas as the land is significantly cheaper. I've worked for major Enterprise operations that were literally surrounded by corn fields. And Enterprise is more keen on doing internships and taking risks on entry level positions, so they are good way to get your career started.

Get on LinkedIn, as that is where most talent hunters focus these days. Work with recruiting agencies. Try to get in with multiple to increase your odds. They take a cut, but they will work to get you interviews.

Also hit up places on Indeed yourself for the smaller companies who can't afford to pay recruiters.

For increasing your appeal, try to work on open source projects. Even if it's just contributing to writing documentation to start with. Then try to fix a couple bugs. Try to stick to already reported issues and don't bite off more than you can chew.

You aren't getting denied because your a fucking white male. That is really only an issue at a handful of San Fran type companies. Everyone else is in it for business and the best candidates. They are used to hiring far more white males than any other demographic. H1B visas are a larger threat than anything else, as they are competing for your entry level salary. But that has reduced since Trump and continues to be on the decline, thankfully.

Interview well and with confidence. Read books constantly. I have a programming book shelf worth thousands if not tens of thousands. If you don't study, you will fall behind and be ruined. Also sign up for newsletters, podcasts, and other means to keep up with your favorite languages and frameworks. You need to be constantly educating yourself if you want to stay ahead.

Do your own pet projects, but always push yourself to go further. Play with different and very new ways of hosting, deploying, etc. I got one gig because I spent a year on my own project and building it out to scale on the cloud, even though my software was small and dumb and didn't need it. The point was to learn about cloud scaling and my day job wasn't providing it. All my theories and experiments applied at the new gig turned the company around. Learn, learn, learn.
