How To Get Your First Developer Job

November 7, 2018 Posted by News 0 thoughts on “How To Get Your First Developer Job”

Here are some tips for finding your first developer job.  Define what type of role you want, then look for job postings for JR positions in that role. Check what type of skills they are looking for, learn the skills you don’t know and practice the ones that you do. .

?Make a portfolio. I would recommend creating a GitHub account , if you don’t have one, and create a public repo for each of your projects. Make sure each repo has a README which explains what the project does and how to run it locally. Also, It is very important that all your code is as clean as possible. ( Indentation, variables naming, comments, etc..) .

? Resume. Create a simple and consistent resume. I would recommend to just use a Google Docs template. Talk about your past experiences, side projects, and education. Try to match your experience with the requirements of the job you are trying to apply. .

?️‍♀️Before the interview. Practice as much as you can with coding exercises. Use something like LeetCode, Codewars or HackerRank.

? Interview. Practice your interview with other people. Make sure you know your resume well, and know about the company. Be early, polite and confident. You got this! There are loads of articles about how to approach the interview process, do your research. .

? Network. Network. Network. Put your self out there. Attend meetups, lectures, and hackatons. It’s important to start building your professional network even as a newcomer to the industry.

I hope this gives you an idea on what to do, but I still recommend doing your research on this subject. As I mentioned before, there are a lot of useful content about this topic on the web. Do your research.
