Just looking for some tips or advice for a noobie that’s been at it for roughly 5 months. I have an entry level front end interview coming up. First one is a phone screening on Monday.
The company I am interviewing with does a lot of government work and there’s a lot of background check stuff(like $30,000 worth) you have to go through to work for them, with that said I’ve already done that for my current job so I am good to go there, I also kinda work for their clients already and am familiar with various mapping software, they do a lot of that too. I honestly think that’s the only way I got the interview, that honest and super enthusiastic cover letter along with some experience on my resume.
I applied to some QA spots that seemed promising as places to learn/ get my foot in the door no word back yet but I really was kinda caught off guard when I heard from these people. Hyped and nervous all at the same time. With all that said what kind of stuff should I expect if I make it to a technical interview for a basic entry level job like this?
I mean like I said I was honest in my cover letter that I have been learning, and on my resume it clearly said I have been doing this stuff for less than a year. I know I could figure out a take home problem but idk about a white board. I know I can pitch myself as a super enthusiastic hungry candidate cause I am. I just don’t have enough knowledge yet I feel like solve stuff without being able trouble shoot and seek out answers on the internet.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
