Listen to this episode with one of these apps:

The tech job market is booming, but the fundamentals of getting hired haven’t changed all that much.

William Bushee wrote the book for how to land that first job as a developer (literally, it’s called “Wired For Coding: How to Stand Out from the Crowd and Land Your First Job as a Developer.”) Will joins Tim on the show to talk about the challenges of today’s job market for both the employer and the job seeker and explains how to bridge the gap to be a win on both sides.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • What’s changed in the job market from today to a few years ago
  • How coding challenges in the hiring process make developers feel
  • The perspectives of the next generation of developers compared to previous generations
  • Best practices for developers landing their first job
  • The long play strategy of networking
  • How there’s only one person who can get away with saying “I’m not good at tech”
