re: How did you land your first job as a junior? VIEW POST


A combination of being in the right place (final year of my postgrad work at a university where my first employer had contacts), at the right time (start of the first .com boom) and with the right knowledge (relatively deep Java experience for the time).

Did I plan any of these things? No.


Right, luck plays a big part. I think most of it is also resilience and grinding. You were doing postgrad and working on your Java skills. It was a matter of time to receive the good things :D
