What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I’m a recent graduate from Texas State University with a degree in Computer Science. I started my career at a startup in January 2018 as a software developer.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
After working at a startup for several months, I realized I wanted to eventually find a position where I could grow and learn from more experienced developers. This led me to creating a profile on Seen. I felt that employers who would take the time to reach out to applicants would likely have good employees (i.e. good mentors).
How did Seen ease your job search?
Seen allowed me to communicate with employers effectively and in a timely manner. I didn’t have to wait for companies to read through my application or resume. Instead, they contacted me to immediately set up interviews.
What excites you most about your new role?
Learning from experienced engineers.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
In tech you really have to present yourself well, especially new graduates. Create a portfolio website to showcase what you can do. Employers will likely be more interested in projects you’ve completed as opposed to a coding problem you solved in an interview (but still study for those whiteboard problems!).
