I love it how otherwise reasonable people throw their brains into the garbage can when doing anything formal they're unfamiliar with. A PhD might get a complete breakdown at the tax offices.

I suggest you re-read that list of qualifications, remind yourself what the real world looks like, then rewrite an actual "job ad" that doesn't look like something a HR drone copy-pasted together from bureaucratic clipart.

  No.17435

>>17432

Two points:

1: we're in an environment where you're interacting directly with people who understand the tasks to be performed. This means that you do not need to translate things to generic legalese as if you used a more impersonal medium such as a literal wanted ad.

2: if you're stating requirements then you do not need to state requirements that are indicators, such as "has certified apps on the app store." You can instead use the direct qualifiers you have for the project and do not need to use proxy qualifiers - since you're not part of a bureaucratic indirect structure designed to filter applicants.

If you're going to hire people via this place, bypass HR and use it much as if you'd have recruited someone via an old boys network. It's how most people do things anyway.

Freelance.

It might be thankless at first, but you can donate your time to a 501(c) (charity) or similar non-profit. Also work on a portfolio if it's applicable to your field.

Implement a stack (LAMP, MEAN, w/e) if thats where you're headed, and run your portfolio on it (or resume/CV/etc).

Don't expect to get alot of cash from freelancing. Do expect to be shitted on. Also contributing to open source projects gets you up there.

I am a second year CS student, currently taking my third semester of programming (data structures) and yet miraculously I have a job interview this week. I am really excited but Im also feeling like my lack of experience (which they are aware of) could be a problem. I have a github and some small projects, mainly Project Euler challenges and the like but I feel like Im not bringing alot to the table.

So any advice for someone in my position? Interview do's and dont's? Thanks

  No.18953

Call yourself a developer even if you don't believe it. Just say it to them. Be as confident as you can. Research the company and ask questions about what life at the job is like as well as some questions to demonstrate you care about the company.

Companies might like that you don't have a lot of experience because it means they'll be able to hire you for cheap or on contract. IMO go for both unless it's absurdly low.

  No.18957

>>18952
You will likely be asked some technical questions. Since you are a second year they should stick to the basics. That will likely mean data structures and simple algorithms. You could expect things like sorts or binary search. Data structure operations like inserting or searching a list, BST, hashtable, etc. Runtime complexity on all of the above.

That's based on one internship I interviewed for, those that my friends interviewed for, and what the professors recommended reviewing. I can't quote specifics because different companies want different things, but that seems fairly typical for internships through entry level.

I won't give any advice other than that because I am abysmal at interviews.

Yeah I was wondering about this, the fake-it-till-you-make-it strategy makes me really nervous because I dont want to come across as overselling my abilities and getting in over my head. Ill try this though because I think coming across as insecure will not help in any way. Questions is definitely a good idea, I almost forgot about that. Yeah, one of the guys who will be interviewing me said my lack of experience could be an advantage because they could "mold me" into adapting to their practices.

I work at one of the top 10 largest data hosting/management companies in the states, we specialize in collocation and cloud management. I'm a Linux technician, and I really am not a huge fan of my job, but I love the people I work with so it really weighs itself out.

We're not presently hiring, but I get 1000$ if I recommend someone who does get hired.

The pay is technically the low compared to other companies, but it's 12 hour shifts. 3 one week, 4 the next. So I get 3 or 4 full days off, and I prefer that to working 5 on 2 off.

2 years, Boston, New Jersey, Atlanta. I work out of Atlanta.

It's technically on site, I work in a NOC (Network Operations Center)

Basically we have a few massive data centers and in those data centers we have thousands of VMs, those VMs can be bought/rented to server a specific purpose. A user says I want X VM to do Y, and I make it do Y and ensure it keeps doing Y properly as long as they pay me. If it's a networks or virtualization issue, I move it on to a networks or Vm tech, and if they're having a Linux issue it gets moved to me.

Actually there already exist tons of such companies in Ukraine and Russia. They are mainly established by local guys who saw the opportunity and moved to the West (mostly US). Basically it works as you described, they collect some tasks in US and relay them home.

>I would pay someone in the Ukraine a wage that would be great in their country but managable in mine


Sadly this is not how this works currently. People whom I mentioned above are willing to squeeze every buck from these enterprises. So they usually pay below the local market level. Because of this they are only able to hire for their companies junior devs without much experience. Usually this is not remote work, there is some kind of office with open space. Work culture, environment and managers are always horrible there. Common name people are using for such company is "galley" which speaks for itself and pretty accurate. Of course there can be some exceptions, but this is how most such companies now work. As for pay, I can say that it can usually be around 500-600$ per month.

So if you are willing to pay decent money and be more human to people you employ there is room for you, but if you want to be extremely greedy you will find yourself competing with with those companies, and they have the advantage that they have already built infrastructure and have local connections.

Now I have these guys who are qualified through the gills and I can pay them 8 dollars an hour. I can even give them a virtual space to code in via a remote server located somewhere near Africa I guess.

I can't exactly approach contract work and say " Yeah I have three nigerian programmers who can do this work, I would like to bid on your job"
