What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I went through a 12-week Java bootcamp almost 3 years ago for a career change. Since then I have been working to harness my skills in ways that are exciting for me and helpful for others. I hope to become a senior developer and become a certified expert in Java.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
I only change jobs when management is not supportive. The thing I found frustrating were recruiters ghosting me and then only reaching back out once I’ve secured another job. I chose Indeed because it seemed to be an easier way to weed out things that weren’t for my skill set.
How did Seen ease your job search?
It eased my job search because the recruiters came to me with their salary range. It was nice to not have a back and forth regarding that.
What excites you most about your new role?
The fact that I’m going to be working in DevOps and still coding Java!
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Don’t give up. Know what salary you want ahead of time and don’t budge unless it is a minuscule move. Know your worth and the job will come.
