In this week's learning, our mentor- John Apostol shares the 3 tips to increase your chances of scoring a position as a Software Engineer. Let’s go 🚀!
1: ✨ Tips for landing a career
Reflect on your thinking process through your portfolio on how to solve a problem in a quick manner
Demonstrate through a project how your code can solve a problem
2: ✨Hiring criteria from Manager’s perspective
Proven learners: show your effort to learn, share your past learnings
Responsible people: towards your work, your team, your clients
Conscientious: reviewing own code, proactively helping team members
3: ✨Strategies to get hired
Apply to a company you know personally
The advantage is you could talk about the product from the user’s perspective.
Apply actively to unpopular companies
You are more likely to get into the resume phase due to the lesser number of people applying to these industries.
Apply to hidden gems
Hidden gem companies (local/regional companies) usually have no marketing budget. They need a software engineer to maintain their products.
