Just wanted to drop a note here for anyone who is at the job searching phase of their transition to being a developer.
However slow you think you’re talking on the phone/zoom, talk even slower.
I just had a chance to sit in on an interview as a shadower last week, and the candidate spoke so so fast, but the candidate did not realize it, and the interviewer I shadowed provided no help on that front. Sadly I also know as potential candidates in the past that sometimes I speak too quickly, and there’s never been a single interviewer to provided that advice.
Speak slowly. Take your time. Good luck!
