If my efforts don't get acknowledged then what's the point. Is this a childish mindset?
To be harsh, yes this is a childish mindset. Referrals and recommendations is the best way to get a job. my first job till now were all through recommendations and referrals. You get a better understanding of the company before you join, and through tips, you excel the interviews better.
if your efforts are not acknowledged, means you are either climbing the wrong tree, or your efforts are not loud enough.
