I got the job πŸ’ƒ

This is just a follow-up to the post I wrote a while back.

After that first interview, I went to another a few days later and got an offer from the second company on the spot. What I immediately got from that was, an interview goes both ways. As much as they are assessing you, you also have to be assessing them. Anyway, I declined an offer to be a front-end developer from this other company and came back to codeo to complete the recruitment process, that being a full day spent at their offices with the team and a second interview.

I started work officially on the 1st of March and I couldn't be more happier. If I were to tag each and everyone who posted here, the content that helped me prep, I wouldn't even know where to start. Thanks to everyone who is a part of dev.to and those that are always lending a helping hand to career toddlers like me. You know, I've even received emails of people pointing out typos in my resume that I'd overlooked.

I mean check this out

I don't know how many times I read these questions, days before both my interviews at codeo. When they finally asked me "Alright, do you have any questions to ask us?" I was blank! This happened twice, when I was trying to recall questions that they haven't answered indirectly or that I haven't figured out already. At most I'd just say "No I don't have any, question 1, 2 and 3 were answered by this, that and such and such but thank you for the opportunity" as I said that, a funny question clouds my mind, it was so silly that I'd giggle while I was trying to speak, like an inner voice kept on shouting "ASK THEM WHERE DO I SIGN?"

Anyway, I'd talk about this forever, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm good now. I'm jobbing πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ (if that's a word)
