What’s your background? Career aspirations?
My background is in statistics and data analytics. I have recently switched to software development specifically in the domain of cloud computing.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
I wanted to explore new roles as I was a little stagnated in the current role. Also, I wanted to switch industries and go from e-commerce analytics to what I was doing to networking and cloud computing which is my new role.
How did Seen ease your job search?
I was pleasantly surprised with Seen. I honestly wasn’t expecting any interview calls but since it was free I decided to sign up. Within 2 weeks of approval I got 2 interview offers and one of them led me to my current company.
What excites you most about your new role?
The tech stack, which is very diverse, and the quality of software applications written by my team members. Their usage of frameworks to ensure 100% code coverage with testing.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Specially for software engineers, early practice is key. Use LeetCode and CareerCup to keep solving interview questions—at least 1 problem per day. Read about data structures and algorithms and implement as many as you can—it’s the most important topic if software interviews.
