Just a little post I thought I would put up as recently I felt like I was judged on my coding skills which I have learnt all in my own time while doing a very demanding job which involves me doing shift work.
So I got assessed on some code recently and made some minor mistakes on it which was missing out on some parentheses and some commas. Anyway the code was all fine though just could not be executed due to the little mistakes. So the company rejected me on that technical test, okay that is fine but why would they reject me when the job I applied for was to get a place in a training academy to learn code better and then being given a full time job as a junior developer with that one company?
They even stated that it was okay to make mistakes as I was a beginner and they just wanted to see that I at least gave the test a go. So I just do not understand how I am supposed to transition into a coding career when people know my situation and that I am self taught and still learning in my own time on my days off. I feel like I have just rambled alot here but I just felt like posting this on here as maybe someone out there might be able to give me some advice or tips or something?? 😔
Anyway hope everyone is safe and well 😁
