I found a job and I have to prepare for an interview, how to cope? I barely know the basics of OOP on both, but I stopped practicing for a few months and now I'm rusty, I'm nervous Bernd ;-;

If you can spend quality 2-3 hours every day, you would need maybe a year to qualify for a junior position. To pass an interview, you need to be able to - talk on the subject for at least an hour straight - show good communication skills - ask relevant questions about their company (to show that you know how this industry operates) - tell about your past achievements - be likable on camera Then do a test task quickly. Then survive for 3 months with real tasks and real teammates, working for 12 hours every day on half the salary. Then you got the job. For the languages you mentioned there are hundreds of applicants for every open position.

- never get emotionally attached to a position before they tell you that you actually have the job - always look at a job interview as an exercise for the next job interview. It's nothing more - it is highly random if you actually get a certain job. Even if you perform at your best they might still not take you if another candidate shows up that might fit better to the position than you. In my experience only shitty companies test you during the interview. If they want to test you they will give you something that you can do at home. Don't learn both Javer and C#. Learn only one. Usually you will either be a Javer or C# programmer. You rarely will be both. If the job descriptions says that they look for Javer and C# its most likely just some bullshit description not for a particular job but to get some applications in.

No time to shitpost, just give your best until the day of the interview. Even if you fuck up you'll have learned some skills and you can just apply for the next job.

>>240774 >In my experience only shitty companies test you during the interview. If they want to test you they will give you something that you can do at home. That is true. If all they do is they ask you to tell about yourself and run you through a quiz they copied from Google - you don't want it. Save yourself a lot of sanity and dump that company straight away.

>>240880 you should also work on some personal projects so you can talk about them during the interview (especially if you have no professional experience); and send your CV even if you don't meet all the requirements (think of job postings as more of a wishlist than non-negotiable requirements)

> I hope I'm employable by next year >>240903 >you should also work on some personal projects at least in germanistan nobody gives a shit about your personal projects. A gap in your CV were you did personal projects looks worse than everything you might have created as your personal project. People have better things to do than look at your Hello World program in your github profile. I would rather do some code bootcamps where they give you ans certificate at the end of it. Then you can show it as proofs of your ability to the HR monkey. Doing some courses is also a more efficient way to learn as much as possible in as little amount of time as possible. You might learn a lot if you do some complex personal project from start to finish but this takes really lot of work and time which won't be rewarded appropriately. Here the easiest way to get a programming job would be to start studying CS. Then you should look out for working student positions at once. A working student costs a company next to nothing so they will take you even if you have no skills at all as long as you appear to be somewhat intelligent. Make sure that it is a position were you actually can program and not test or do monkey work. This way you can earn money and gain real work experience right from the start. Best way would be to get ans bachelors and then get a real job but you can also just fuck around in university and do your working student thing for a couple of years. Then take your working student experience and apply for code monkey jobs without university degree.

>>240952 that's interesting, because here bootcamps are a bit of a meme, and people often make fun of those who pay for them; and employers actually look at projects (if you manage to get an interview, that is; also, projects should be something more complex than a hello world lel; that's how I got my first job after uni)

>>240959 Did you do your personal projects during university or did you take time off after it to do them? My main point is that a gap in your CV for some personal projects is worse than doing something 'real'.
