Inspiring story,

Very inspiring your story, @Sergi-O , stories like yours motivate many to don’t give up for reaching their dreams. Congratulations for your dedication, and for your new work as a professional developer, you deserve it - “te lo mereces”, dale, a por mas.

Thanks so much for sharing your story! Amazing, and extremelly REAL…this is today coding job-search in Europe (for a simil-Junior position at least)…by the way, I agree with the above to run away from who is asking you to build complex structure…I had a similar experience, went for a Javascript position, nailed the interview (even the final algorithm)…and then they asked me to build this app:

In this exercise, you have to implement a full-stack web application with a very simple functionality. The application should consist of a Nodejs back-end and an Angularjs front-end. The Nodejs service should expose a REST API with possibly a single end-point that allows the Angulajs app to query a resource from a database. The Angulajs app should visualize the received data.
The goal of the application is to visualize a graph. The database should store nodes and edges in some format, the Nodejs app should read the database and send the data to the front-end when requested. Finally the Angularjs app should draw the graph using SVG.
The suggested technology stack is as follows:
• Angulajs for the front-end
• d3 (or equivalent) for visualizing the graph
• Nodejs code for the backend
• ES6 code
• koajs (or equivalent) as web framework
• Sequelize (or equivalent) as ORM
• Postgres as database manager
The evaluation of the exercise is based on the following aspects:
• clarity of code
• software architecture: proper separation of model, controller and service
implementations both on back-end and on front-end

Right! :slight_smile: If I would have those skills already, probably I would be already working!

Final note, your Portfolio is FANTASTIC! Great job to market yourself, beautiful landing page, beautiful projects, and nice presentation overall (as a personal note on the projects links, I would use target="_blank" attribute; although, it can be a personal choice).

Great stuff!

Thanks a lot! Yea that doesn’t sound too Junior to me. In my case though the app was a copy from one in gihub so I believe it was a genuine test of skill. But in general yea no one should do free work, even though as a Junior on your first job hunt every interview and experience feels good. For my current job I did free work while I was waiting for the contract but I asked for it so I could prepare and see what they did on a regular basis. Thanks for the portfolio tip.

Congratulation :tada: man, really like the way added explanation to your codes. Keep up the good work.

Dude well done, I’ve started going through your portfolio and I really like the idea of the RGB colour guesser, what’s the etiquette for trying to build the same thing/building the same thing and pointing to where you got the idea from? Hahah

The rgb game idea is from the web developer bootcamp, an udemy course. I did my own implementation on my portfolio though.

Thank you so much for sharing your story with us!
And you have really a great portfolio :slight_smile:

Congratulations! Thank you for sharing your story!

Crazy assignment for a supposed junior position. And you’re right. With that knowledge you’d already be employed.

Congratulations! Thanks for sharing. Success stories like this one are always a push for those of whom have just begun their journey.
