Hi you all, last week I had the opportunity of been interviewed for a front end job and i blew it but i did learn a thing on another and i'd like to share this with you.
- So, that's basic i know but i was hoping for a hey man what you do on your free time interview and then came the test which was pretty simple but due to the nervousness and lack of training i wasn't able to finish it in time.
- Even so, i'm currently a junior developer, i study everyday and have a base but at the interview i let this fear take over and skip answering a lot of questions only because i didn't think i knew the exactly answer.
- Yeah that's also basic but its a fact this interview showed me that i never should stop learning the vanilla and keep updating myself with language concepts especially functional ones.
- This is not new for me at least, you have to ask a lot of questions, in this particular case i was nervous and let it pass.
- Hey i know it might be your dream job but keep it together bro.
- We have to really train our a**es off coding interview challenges, will help not only on interviews but on problem resolution as well.
- For work i had to learn react alongside JS i felt at this interview the tech debt i had to cut and study the basic was really big. build the strongest foundation you can.
- He'll know you're under a lot of pressure and that's not your regular performance so we have to try and chill a bit.
Basic books he told me to read.
Clean code (Reading this one, heavy but worth it)
You Don't Know JS (Available free here)
- As beginners it's really hard to try and learn everything so focusing on one lib like react for example should be the path to go with the career begin.
Of course, it's frustrating to fail an interview but the feedback helps us to move to next more and more prepared, i'm thankful for having the opportunity to experience this and will work on the tips received to get better to the next, i really hoping by sharing this i can help someone get better results. I also would like to thank Ricardo Luz to give me this feedback and letting me share this with you, don't forget to check out his Linkedin it has awesome content. Leave a comment if you have some tips to share with me too and that's it.
