Getting a development job
So this is my first blog post. Every time I have the idea of writing a blog it usually comes out of frustration. Just thousands of thoughts racing around your head until they all fall apart at the same time and create chaos.
I guess it’s then you have the need to put them together, and what better way to do it then on paper.
And this is the part where it got a bit frustrating. I probably send about 3 applications a day on average. I’ve had about ten interviews until now. And I still keep sending applications and I got to a point where I feel like I’m sending messages in a bottle, which probably isn’t to far from reality.
The biggest problem I usually face is speed. There probably isn’t anything I can’t figure out or make using HTML, CSS and JS. But most of the times I can’t do it in 30 minutes, an hour or a day. And that’s where I usually face a wall when I come to the interview stage. I mean all of this makes perfect sense and it’s normal to expect speed, especially if you’re paying someone by the hour. This is something I will have to tackle on my road to becoming an awesome web developer. And it’s just another bump in the road that I guess you face doing any kind of job…
Just… keep… pushing…
