Hey everyone. Just want to share the news in those COVID-19 times. Recently I got an offer from the company and was happy to finally gaining commercial experience.
My journey in tech (journey, not love) started in 2018 when I tried to build a few games with Unity and C#, taking C# courses since then from time to time. But from autumn 2019 I was doing FCC, gaining projects and in earlier dates of March I’ve started to apply on jobs.
Got rejections, got invitations to do the tests. Did some, suffer ahah Learn new things. Some companies stopped the hiring process due to the crisis. But one didn’t and I was offered to take an interview with tech-lead, then with team-lead. From the questions with tech lead, I understood how little I know: the theory in JS is so deep and I felt so stupid damn One-thread or multi-threaded, how call-stack works, some basic questions that I’ve already forgot (like types of data) and etc. However I provided not bad or even good answers in React and in execution. I did the test they gave me. Not without mistakes or bugs, but the job was done.
Writing this post as I myself read lot of stories here and there and it’s my selfish dream to share my success At one moment I wanted to write a post for help, cause didn’t want to become jobless in the crisis, but decided to wait. Decided that asking for help will be my last approach when I will try really everything.
Happy, that now my thread has a different title.
I am really grateful for many people that helped me when I wrote a topic about career advice in late February. Got valuable feedback, fixed the issues, got some inspiration and mental support - it is really helpful and important, so thank you very much!
So to every person, who is looking right now for a job - stay strong and good luck!
