Honestly, I went a little light on the coding this week and focused on cleaning, organizing and grooming to pre-covid standards. But I did make some progress on polishing up my portfolio site and adding features to a project. Also I listened to some great advice on applying and interviewing for your first coding job from Coder Foundry and Coding After 30 / TechRally on youtube.
Self care is just as important. 😎
Nice to hear the portfolio is coming along too.
Hey J, do you have the link? What struck you about the interview? Any advice you care to share?
PS. I call those cleaning/organizational days, "Cleaning My Brain" ala Talking Heads, youtu.be/7Lf4_eXORRM?t=45
Sure, Here's the CodingAfter30 interview with TechRally: youtu.be/YHD_FBUvi70
and one with CompSciCodeFi: youtu.be/V_2Iq4ddkh8
There were so many great tips in both of these videos on building an effective, simple resume with the right key words, having the right projects on your portfolio and making sure you present it in the interview. Paul also shares some of his projects and resume. I really like the Coding After 30 channel, because I can relate :) and he doesn't really sugar coat anything, but keeps you motivated too.
