I have just finished my second year of Computer Science and am starting as a Software Developer at ARM for a 1 year placement. I am writing a journal during my time on placement and have a 10,000 word assignment about my time on placement.
Would anyone care to share tips about starting their first Developer jobs?
What questions should I ask myself in my journal daily?
What sort of goals should I set, each week/each month/ entirety of the placement.
Anything else you can think of would be great!
Hey, I have written a blog post about the lessons I learned in my first year on the job: http://junior-dev.com/2018/05/07/first-year-software-dev-lessons-learned/
What I did and still ask myself daily:
- What did i learn today?
- What mistakes did I make?
-How can I improve?
If you are conciously thinking about this questions you will be already ahead of most of your peers.
Thank you for that reply, I will definitely consider these and hopefully add some more!
I have just written my own blog on expectations and preparations before I begin my internship here:
