there are many actionable steps you can take. Building a solid resume, Build a nice portfolio site including links to github repositories etc. be able to prove your strengths. You can google what current employers are looking for and don't be discouraged if you don't have all the skills still apply and follow up and when you get rejection responses I would even go as far as trying to follow up and see if they could provide any insight on to why you were not a perfect fit and make those priority skills to train on. keep applying, keep moving forward!

thanks bro
