Don’t apply to jobs starting with junior Dev. It might sound save but, it’s just a way of saying we pay you less for the same job. Internships try avoid if you can. As a dev aren’t you also learning each day? Aren’t you also growing each day? It really is just a way to make money off you. Beside if they have to pay you they are also more likely to be invested into.
If you are doubting things like the years think this:
This is how they ussualy are making the requests:
The guy’s making the application propably just thought it up during a meeting and or not and then told the seceratary. Having no real idea what it is about they randomly add years. This is why you can find job applications that more looks like bullet points and programming languages with more years onto it then they do exsist.
What is a year really?
You can work a year somewhere without learning a single thing. A year working somewhere means nothing. You can even learn more in a single month than that one person who worked five years in a company.
Will the years really matter?
If you are already at the job interview. Remeber they already picked you out for the skill you showed them. Beside most of the time’s they won’t even check and if they do so what? Again if you can show the amazing project and skills you have then they won’t be difficult about, the years.
Red Flag’s on job applications are:
A salary less then minum wage or to low in comparision with what you actually should be making. Don’t do it guy’s.
Job applications that are asking you to more then just developer. Like doing also the design and taking up phone call’s. You are not the whole team on your own. Those are sepperate job’s. It just means they want to save money and care less about, the quality they provide.
That ask to share your passwords or other thing you are not comfterbell with. You have boundary’s and those are to be respected. If a company can’t do that then you are in a bad possition.
That ask you to be chipped. Taking your work every where you go? Company’s that track your heart beat? Soon you have confersations like: At 11:07 we saw your pulse going up. Where you looking at your phone?
A job asking you to do overtime. It comes mostly as flexible hours.
Might be asked to use your own devices. Alway’s do ask a compensation for this. Material isn’t free and if a company is to gready to spend onto proper equitment. Ask at least a compensation. Your money and property is not meant to maken them better.
Applications with a code test that ask you to:
Not run the code at all only at the end:
That’s like asking someone to run a marathon with a bullet in their foot.
Not use Google:
You are going to use Google every day on your job. It’s ridiculous to not use Google.
Applying for a job tip’s
If you are applying to a job. Check their site and try to do your projects in their style if you mastered their frame work it. They spend less time learning you it.
Using bootstrap is okay. You don’t have to hardcode it. Most people just take an intrest how it looks.
Make sure they have some thing warm in their hands.
