Erin Fox on Interviewing
Erin Fox (@erinfoox) joins Jenn (@gurlcode) to talk about one of the most stressful parts of being a software developer: interviews. We talk about why interviewing in tech is nerve-racking, how to handle rejections and why, like dating, you should never commit too early.
Each season, single-threaded tackles a new topic in software engineering. This first season, we're exploring feelings. Why do we like some technologies but dislike others? How do our emotions come into play with our career choices? These are some of the questions we'll be answering this season. Episodes are a mix of guest interviews and solo musings. Coming February 2021.
