Programming Job Interview: Do It For You! (Fuck The Employer?)

I'm currently in the process of releasing a new book and in this process I'm doing a lot of interview with some amazing names of the programmin industry. During this time, I recorder an interview and in this interview i heard something that got me thinking.

"Do It For You".

While this concept is not new for me, I started to think and to apply it for programming interviews. Do you do it?

When you're in the middle of a programming job interview, do you have a scarcity mindset of "I really need that job" or do you do it for you?

No Degree: Apply For Job Or Internship?

When you don't have a degree your options are definitely limited. You have a few paths you can follow but all of them will lead to a more limited option than if you had a degree... At least in theory and that is what most people think.

There are basically two options if you're in the middle of a graduation process: - Get a Job
- Apply For an Internship

These two options will give you completely different outcomes, and you should be able to choose them well. What should you choose? Job or Internship?

165 Success Story: Mitch Tabian On Building Online Programming Presence - Simple Programmer Video Podcast

Success Story: Mitch Tabian On Building Online Programming Presence

Mitch is one more of those awesome success stories I like to share with you guys to show that, once you start to put everything I teach you in this channel, the chances of success are close to 100%.

Here is part of how his life changed one he started applying what I teach in this YouTube channel: " I think you will probably remember me as I've emailed you several times in the past and commented on quite a few videos - but who knows, you have such a large reach know I think it would be easy to get lost in the crowd.

I have been watching your videos since December 2015 (back when you still had the squeaky voice in some of your videos and occasionally wore a fidora). At that point I was in my last semester of school, finishing up my BSc. Physics and Diploma in Enginnering Physics. I had NO idea what I really wanted to do when I graduated in approximately 4 months.

This was scary AF.

Very quickly I saw that my true passion was writing code. I had taken only 2 java classes, a Python class, a C++ class and an Assembly programming class. But upon reflection I realized that was what I really liked doing.

I had ZERO idea how to become a software developer with my current education. After asking around I came to the conclusion that is was possible - so I started watching YouTube videos.

I had to come up with a way to really learn to code, and learn quickly because I only had 4 months until I needed to get a job - and unemployment was not an option for me. I can't sit idle, I need to do things.

This is where you came in. I watched your videos and listened to your advice. I bought your blogging course and made my own blog. I then decided I was going to share with others as I learned and made a YouTube channel. On the channel I made (and still make) video tutorials for Android App Development. This accelerated my learning pace by x100. Teaching others is the single best way to learn something yourself. It forces you to develop a much deeper understanding. When your presenting something you can clearly see all the holes in your knowledge.

I started out only doing 1 or 2 posts a week but I was coding and learning a ton after school and on weekends. My first videos were shit and when I look back at them I cringe a little - so I completely understand how you felt when watching your old videos when you had that squeaky voice lol.

Fast-forward to graduation in April 2016: I managed to get an IT job at one of the largest companies in the province where I live. It wasn't a programmer job, but they employed programmers so I was very excited. I really believe the only reason they even brought me in for an interview is because of the technical skills I learned when teaching myself so code. I'm pretty good with people so that sealed the deal in the interview, but I doubt they would have called me without the programming/database skills I put on my resume.

Fast-forward to today: I quit my job about 4 months ago to do my own thing. I had done a few contract jobs building apps for people/companies while I was working my IT job and decided that I was going to give the YouTube and Freelance Android Dev thing a try - and really commit to it. Now everything is going really well for me"
