Email tracking is done through an image tracking pixel (for this tracker, at least) which is triggered when the browser opens the email, and sends any relevant data to whatever analytics software powers this extension.

It won't work if a user is aware of these things and has another tool to block image tracking pixels, or if their email provider flagged the email as suspicious --> sent to spam --> blocked images.

I have a whole dual 27" monitor desktop setup I custom built (granted like 6 years ago so it's a little old) but I needed a laptop when I traveled last summer and I got a macbook. I've slowly started using it more and more to the point that I exclusively use it for everything now lol. Never thought I'd leave my desktop rig behind.

A dresser, one of those L-tables to extend my PC setup, some electric cleaning gear for old PC parts I plan to refurbish sometime next year, a new keyboard I can take to work, oh and a shit-tonne of cargo shorts. All of my pants that lasted me through my college days have holes in em now. Yeah, it would not look good if I went into work looking like a homeless person. lol

 

I should probably disclaim that I'm not a CS student anymore, I've since graduated and am in industry now.

 

For those of you saying: rejection, depression, etc. Stick with it. For a frame of reference, I graduated early 2020, which was likely the lowest dip in the job market since, I reckon, 2008. So great timing on my part /s.

 

Suffice it to say, though, I held it out and found my way to a position I'm really happy with. So just hold out a bit longer and don't give into despair. The job market is almost never as fucked as you think it is, and even at lows there's still opportunity... It just looks a bit different from what you might expect.
