Firstly hello😊👋 all hope you're doing good and taking care of yourself. It's been a while I haven't written anything so in this article I will describe the story of how I got my first job.
Contents

  • Background Story
  • How the dev community helped me and some tips Let's Start Background Story As I am a final year computer science graduate student in this phase of life you need to decide whether you're going to do a job or you're going for higher studies in my case since the sophomore year of my degree I started doing things that are going to help me to get a job but honestly I like being a student in this student phase you can experiment on so many things and also you don't have to worry about so many things like future and all you just need to do studies and learning new things/building new things as per interest and then rest this is it but things change as we grow. and also I like to do research on things and I also did some research kind of work here Basic Research Work because the research thing I thought about higher studies in some well known foreign universities but because of COVID and some financial reasons that thing I put on hold but in future at some point in my life, I will try to do research that can help humanity. And then honestly I saw many students doing internships in the final semester I got many opportunities but I rejected those things because I wanted to experiment with the things and I did my overall reaction for my this decision is in between neutral. after this thing, I took small steps towards getting a job those things I will explain in the upcoming paragraph. How DevCommunity helped me to get a job Firstly I applied to 4-5 good companies with help of their careers section few startups also my resume got selected I given interviews also but in some cases in coding sections and in some case they rejected me because they are searching for experienced candidates. Then I thought I am having 40credits in my dev account then I created the one listed below is an example of that 5 credit per listing Alt Text then for the next two-three days, I haven't got any response and then two companies contacted me then I gave an interview of one company after doing all the like interviews and stuff they said we need a more experienced candidate. and then another company contacted me I was given first interview this time the interviewers and company folks are so helpful and kind also then said we will give you one coding assignment complete that and let us know then and then i completed that exercise and then directly they offered me the job as a Jr FullStack developer Alt Text Soon I am going to join this company that's good news in these tough times. all the details of the company will reflect on Linkedin soon.

Some Tips

  • If you're going to apply for a dev job then build a project document your learnings on the blogs build something cool and contribute to the opensource projects and apply through careers sites or LinkedIn. and in the job we are going to use reactjs/meteor js/node/express/MongoDB This is my new chapter of life. stay safe take care Thank you mother/grandmother and relatives and Devcommunity. that's all I did have a great day:). Note:- I know everyone is missing those trips vacations those happy times with family older grandparents i miss that too because of covid I can't go there I will go to meet my grandparents after and then Dalai lama(Hopefully as soon as possible) these are personal topics I am sharing here😊.
