re: Share Your Experiences with Impostor Syndrome VIEW POST


Started my current job (.net webservices) from a longtime desktop/C++ background. I'd never seen a CI/CD pipeline before, never worked on an ASP.NET project or heard of a connection pool, never heard of dependency injection until someone asked about it in an interview, the list goes on and on. On top of all that, the company handles a lot of credit card transactions, so we get regularly audited for compliance with security standards (which I'd also never engaged with).

Did I mention I was coming off of eight months of unemployment and a failed interview at Google?

Every morning I came to work, for the first three months, I was certain they'd find me out and fire me. Two years later I'm a team lead, so I guess I did okay. :)
