Career Directions 

Build Your Brand

You have a clear understanding of what you want and have taken some great actions towards your goal such as boot camp, personal projects, hackathons, etc. You have all the great ingredients, not put them together and showcase your hard skills and soft skills! LinkedIn looks great, but I suggest building a personal website!
