5 Steps to Finding Employment as a Computer / Web Developer

  1. 1. Finished School? Now What? 5 Steps to Finding Employment as a Computer / Web Developer * Web * Software * Database
  2. 2. 5 Steps to Employment * Evaluate what you are doing everyday? * Confidence Building * Get yourself an online presence * Continue learning * Network like it is 1999
  3. 3. Evaluate! * Set yourself goals. Determine if your goals are realistic. Are you meeting your goals? * What are you doing every day? Is it productive? Are you using your time wisely? * How much time do you need to spend looking and how much time do you need to spend on yourself? * What do you want and how do you think you can get it? * How many people have you met this week?
  4. 4. Confidence * If you have been looking or new at looking for employment, it can be a blow to your confidence and that is completely normal * Find a mentor or someone to talk to * Clubs like Toastmasters can help build confidence * Exercise – Go for walks * Confidence Matters
  5. 5. Get a Presence * Until you do the later steps, you cannot successfully do this * Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn – Social Media – Jobs are often posted and clubs and other groups share their meeting times. * Use it for networking and promoting. Good way to know what is Out there * It is about you… it shows your character. Character is king in this day * GitHub – if you are any kind of developer, this is your chance to show what you can do.
  6. 6. Learning More? What? * You just finished school, but guess what? You need to keep learning! * School did not teach you everything. You need to use your freshly developed mind and continue being a sponge for knowledge * Do not just read – do! You learn best by doing and at the same time you can show off what you are learning on GitHub and your personal website you just created in the previous slide. * Learning is not always a continuation of what you learned in school. Learn how to communicate, manage yourself, how to present yourself. * Practice… Practice… Practice…
  7. 7. Network Like 1999 * Just sitting at home behind a keyboard will not get you to meet people. Find events that allow you to learn and meet people. * The goal is not just to meet employers, but to get to know who in the industry you can learn from. * Make yourself some business cards. Plain cards can work, but a little spice will get people to remember you. * Chamber of Commerce and other local business groups are great ways to meet potential employers and get to know what is out there. * Presenting as available for contract can help gain long term recognition.
