re: Hello :), Congrats! May I ask you what your entry salary was? I would appreciate a lot to have an impression. Thank you a lot in advance.
 

Hi there,

My particular salary won't be of my use as it varies so much depending on your location, level of experience, company etc. I have however used Pay Scale many times before to get an idea of salaries and find it's data to be fairly accurate :)

Hope that helps!

 

Wow, that was fast! Thank you :)!

What’s your professional background beside your self-taught programming experience?

Where did you look after a job or rather how?

Thanks again being there for questions!

No problem! I was a university student studying business and working as a marketing assistant before becoming a developer. I searched job boards like Seek for opportunities, and found the listing for my first job there. I was very underqualifued, but decided to just give it a go and apply, and thankfully it worked out :D

Sounds great!

One more question (you shouldn’t have offered me to ask ;) ):
What’s the atmosphere in a front end developer job like?
Is it more relaxed or stressful?

Haha all good 😅 it really depends on the company you work with. Every company will have a different culture and process of working. For example my first job was at an agency where the pace and stress levels varied a lot depending on deadlines and the amount of work we had coming in. Where as my current job is a lot more level in terms of stress/work load because it is an internal product and we focus mostly on one or two releases at a time :)

Thank you :). You have dog, is that right :)? I adore dogs.
What kind of dog is yours?
Are you allowed to bring your dog to work?
