Joshua Graham for Getting Apps Done

Tips for new developers looking for their first job!

Yesterday a new developer asked me for tips and suggestions for getting their first job. One of the suggestions I gave was to get involved in local tech Slacks. Getting to know other local developers, plus recruiters can make a big difference in finding companies that are open to taking on entry level devs, plus if you get to know them well enough they may well be willing to vouch for you, and not much beats that for getting your foot in the door!

What other tips and suggestions do YOU have? What's worked for you, or what are you trying in your search right now?

Great suggestion. How did you do that? Was it source code, portfolio, mix of both?
