How to be More Successful in a Job Hunt
If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen this tweet go out into the universe. I'm in the process of exploring the next part of my career and asking you all to help me do that by spreading the word. Don't think spreading the word can make a difference? It totally can.
Just this past week, a junior dev I've been helping in his job hunt landed his first dev job succeeded. I used my network and made a tweet promoting his background, skill set, and hard work and it paid off. A company reached out to him, he nailed the technical interview, and now he starts in a few weeks. All because a tweet connected some people! Trust me, spreading the word can help, and I'd appreciate whatever support you could show me (if you haven't already. Much love to all of you who have!).
Putting oneself out there, into the job market, can be one of the most nerve wracking parts of one's career. Whether it's your first job, your second, or your tenth, being in the hot seat and under scrutiny can be really uncomfortable. No matter how many times you've done it, I don't think you can get rid of the nerves entirely. However, I think there are a few changes you can make to change your mindset and get more offer. So here are my tips to help you be more successful at interviews.
