You graduated from a higher educational institution in the relevant specialty and would like to get a job as a programmer? Do not listen to gloomy predictions like: "There are a dime a dozen programmers now." Try to take the initiative, show what you are capable of, and your efforts will bear worthy results.
Make a competent resume, which should reflect all your personal and professional qualities (including responsibility and readiness to resolve any issues in this specialty).
Place your resume on the Internet, but do not stop there, try to find potential employers yourself, using all the possibilities for this: the media, connections and acquaintances of friends and family.
Prepare responsibly for the upcoming interview. Keep in mind that it plays an even bigger role than a resume, even a great one. An interview is an exam in three subjects at once. In addition to your professional knowledge, you will need psychology and sociology, so that not only your answers to questions are literate, but the very style of communication attracts the interlocutor and arouses his respect and interest.
Take your appearance seriously in a job interview. Do not forget: "They are met by their clothes …". Be neat, attentive to every little thing.
Don't be late for your interview by any means. Better to spend time waiting than to come even ten minutes late.
Before the interview, find out everything related to work in your specialty in the company in which you are going to apply for the position of a programmer. Your awareness will definitely play into your hands. This will allow potential employers to make sure that you are serious about both yourself and your future job.
Get ready to be given a test task. Moreover, it is not at all necessary that you receive it as your homework. You may need to do it right during the interview.
Stick to the middle ground during the interview. It is not necessary to demonstrate exaggerated requirements for the place of work, but passivity will not add "pluses" either.
Put all doubts aside and persistently look for those jobs that will not only provide you with a livelihood, but will also help you reach your full potential. Remember: "The road will be mastered by the one walking."
