I signed on for a six month internship in January, with the understanding that if I performed well, I would be brought on as a full employee at the end of 6 months, and that otherwise we would go our separate ways. I'm a bootcamp grad without a degree, so I lept at a chance to prove myself and get started in the industry, even though the pay was subpar for the industry ($36k salary in downtown Bellevue). Now, 6 months later, my boss shut down salary negotiations and wants to extend my internship for another 3 months and "reevaluate then". I was told that despite my technical contributions (I rebuilt a php app in react and node with 8x better performance entirely by myself), my time estimates were inaccurate and I wasn't sending regular screenshots with my daily tasks email (which I had never been asked to send, I was told to write up what I did each day), so tough shit. I'm feeling frustrated and taken advantage of, and I guess I'm looking for advice and recommendations on companies that are willing to hire someone with skills but no degree.
Edit: also see it as a way to gain hands on experience that you can leverage to get you a better full time and paid position at a company that respects your time.
