Finding a Job (10 Part Series)
My name is Rahul and I have been an Android Engineer for the past three and a half years, working at various start-ups in India.
Today, I'm starting to look out for a new job opportunity for the same role. Either remote or a job in Bangalore works for me.
Finding a new job can be an exhausting process. Week to month-long interview processes and rejection can easily wear people down.
I have been there and it sucks.
This isn't the first time someone is opening up about their job hunting journey. What I've mostly read are the stories of people who have successfully landed a job and how did they do it.
I wanted to make this different. Make this a live record of my journey.
As already shared on Twitter:
I have decided to post my journey on a regular basis both here on dev.to and over at Twitter.
What I'm hoping this will do is:
- Enable people in the same situation as me to relate to the process and maybe pick up a few learnings from my journey
- Get me help from the amazing developer community to correct what I'm doing wrong
So, let's begin.
I got a few responses from AngelList after I switched my current status to Actively interviewing.
Have to get back to them.
Apart from that, I will be creating an open-source Android app implementing Android's new and shiny Jetpack components.
This project will help me move from the MVP architecture to MVVM and also get up to speed with the latest tech in the Android world.
I'll post short tweets on my Twitter handle @chowdhuryrahul while building up this app today.
Follow me if you're interested in this journey. 😄
Any thoughts on this?
