I'd add to that, that bringing other skills along with coding can be a great way to outshine other applicants. E.g. if you were an accountant before deciding to start coding, then joining a company that develops accounting software would give you a huge advantage over a kid fresh out of college who don't know his debits from his credits :)
Greate advice, man, thanks. My ultimate goal would be to work as a developer for something related to music or literaturue which are my other big interests :D
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
