Publisher's Summary

A complete guide on how to get your first programming job from a hiring manager, even if you are changing careers, a transitioning military veteran, don't have a degree, or want to make more money.

I made a career switch from sales and with no coding experience to becoming a software engineer (with no degree) and am now a senior software engineering manager (hiring manager) at the largest tech company in the world leading teams of dozens of engineers. This is how I did it. For those looking to make a career change, want to get your first programming job, or learn how to actually get hired, this is the book for you. 

In this book, I'll cover:

  • How to get professional software engineering experience that you can put on your resume
  • How to handle the technical interview
  • What to expect in your first role as a software engineer
  • Does formal education matter
  • Does language you are learning matter
  • How to structure your resume experience to get your first coding job
  • How to get better as a developer
  • How to find hidden engineering jobs that aren't on the job boards
  • How to handle rejection and have hope
  • How to get internships
  • What types of jobs to apply for

And much more. So, if you want to get your first job as a software engineer, this is the book for you.
