No one likes going for a job interview.
Even people who are good at them still get nervous.
Heart thumping, palms sweaty, feeling awkward… it’s the same for everyone.
Now imagine if English isn’t your first language!
Imagine if you’re already awkward in ANY social setting!
If you get nervous just talking to strangers then a job interview is a living nightmare.
Thankfully, we’re here to help.
Soft skills are just as important
You don’t need to be an all-singing, all-dancing candidate at a job interview.
Yes, it’s true extroverts in general do better in interviews than introverts, but when it comes to software developer jobs in particular, extroversion is not what companies are looking for.
A business needs to know a developer can work as a team, and not go off and do their own thing.
They want someone who can quietly sit at their desk and work, focusing on the job at hand.
Extroverts tend to be more social, and while every office needs someone to bring a laugh and a smile everyday, they don’t need someone who’s going to distract everyone from their work.
No company wants a David Brent or a Michael Scott.
We teach you what to do and say during an interview
We can help you prepare for by holding practice interviews.
On top of that, we know which questions are likely to be asked in the industry, and how you should answer them.
We can help you believe in yourself, even if English isn’t your first language, and give you confidence you never knew you had.
The main thing to do during an interview for a software developer job is to be confident.
You don’t have to lie about what you can do or how great you are.
Just by simply speaking up, loudly and clearly, and giving honest answers, you will already be ahead of the rest.
