Question for software engineers: Would you leave your job because you didn't like the tech stack?— David Fowler 🇧🇧 (@davidfowl) April 21, 2021
Interviewing is career speed dating— R 'Nearest' Nabors 💙 (@rachelnabors) June 26, 2021
Job interviews should be conversations, not interrogations.— Adam Karpiak (@Adam_Karpiak) July 7, 2021
"Where do you see yourself in five years?"— Oliver Jumpertz (@oliverjumpertz) July 17, 2021
This is still a common job interview question.
But do you hate it as much as I do and would love to stand up and simply leave immediately?
Here is how you can turn this question into a huge win.
A thread. ↓
It immediately strips away a lot of your credibility and can often even close some doors.
"Why should we hire you?"— Oliver Jumpertz (@oliverjumpertz) July 19, 2021
This is another of those questions everyone interviewing hates.
It spread from traditional jobs into the tech world, and even software developers have to deal with it.
But you can turn this into a huge win. Let's see how.
A thread. ↓
"Why do you want to work here?"— Oliver Jumpertz (@oliverjumpertz) July 21, 2021
"Well, I am a web developer, and you are looking for one. Additionally, I need the money."
Some interview questions are stupid. But giving answers like the one above doesn't help.
Let's see how to tackle this one effectively.
A thread. ↓
"What's your greatest weakness?"— Oliver Jumpertz (@oliverjumpertz) July 22, 2021
Have you ever been asked this question in an interview and were like, "Yea, uhm, well...I sometimes want to achieve too much?"
This question is tricky, but here is how you can crush it!

I regularly get asked which language or framework someone should learn.— Oliver Jumpertz (@oliverjumpertz) August 5, 2021
Here is my advice for aspiring software developers, asking themselves the same question, unsure what to learn to enter the industry, as someone who works as a tech lead in the industry.
A thread. ↓
The chances of any candidate matching 100% of the requirements of a job ad for a software engineer are low.— Oliver Jumpertz (@oliverjumpertz) August 7, 2021
Give it a shot and apply if you tick at least 40 - 50% of the boxes.
That company might still consider you for a different role.
The interview process is ultra-competitive.— Sahil Bloom (@SahilBloom) August 7, 2021
But with proper preparation, it is possible to stand out.

Interviewing for technical positions is a broken process.— Santiago (@svpino) December 7, 2021
I believe this is going to change soon.
Getting a job in the software industry we’ll look very different within the next 10 years.

People who are fluent on more than one cloud provider - how has this skillset affected your career?— Forrest Brazeal (@forrestbrazeal) December 28, 2021
Does it mostly just expand your job opportunities (ie, you can get hired by a GCP shop or an AWS shop), or do you find yourself working with multiple clouds at your current job?
Anxiety sucks. Live coding interviews están definitivamente en el top 5 de las peores experiencias en mi carrera. 🤦♂️— Christian Roman 👨💻🏝 (@devnull) February 7, 2022

Working for a bad manager can torch your professional confidence and make you feel like you're incapable of succeeding at your job.— Phoebe the Career Coach (@betterwphoebe) August 9, 2021
Here's a checklist to help you tell the difference between legitimate criticism you should act upon and illegitimate criticism you should ignore.
Companies optimize for people who can pass the coding interview instead of optimizing for people who can do the job.— Randall Kanna (@RandallKanna) September 11, 2021
"Wow you've had a lot of jobs"— alex dee (@aalexdee) September 16, 2021
Yes, I can get a 25% raise for jumping or stick around for the possibility of a cost of living bonus, which is usually less than 5%.
We need to reinvent interviewing in tech. Companies are optimizing for the people who can game the interview but not the people who are good at the job.....— Randall Kanna (@RandallKanna) September 19, 2021

Software eng interviews today: “Invert this binary tree” (because I said so)— Anna Spysz 💉💉 (@annaspies) September 24, 2021
What software eng interviews should be:“The customer wants you to implement feature X. How would you make it work with the legacy codebase? What’s your time estimate? What security issues could arise?”
"terminated within the hour" -- big companies treat employees as disposable :/ https://t.co/BAgiSBmX4c— Liz Fong-Jones (方禮真) (@lizthegrey) September 29, 2021
I will never understand why tech companies optimize interviews for a college grad to do better than someone with ten years of experience.— Randall Kanna (@RandallKanna) September 30, 2021
Ayer me pegué una juerga. Una de las de verdad, de decir "te quiero tío" a los colegas y volver a casa hecho unos zorros.

Dentro hilo.— Dani Sanchez-Crespo (@DaniNovarama) October 2, 2021
Everyone is hiring. Everyone is understaffed. Everyone is sticking to the same ineffective and inequitable interview processes. Everyone remains understaffed.— Tashay (@tashay_g) October 1, 2021

This is not just Nigeria, but worldwide.— Gergely Orosz (@GergelyOrosz) October 6, 2021
If you work in IT: you’re usually seen cost center, typically in a “traditional” company.
If you work in tech, you’re typically viewed as a profit generator, and core to the company. Both autonomy, motivation and pay tend to be higher. https://t.co/z579RoAS3I
Unpopular opinion: I don’t think being a 10x engineer is a persona. 10xness is specific to projects and what orgs allow you to do. It’s a combination of having authority and skills to execute. It depends on the momentary situation and it’s not always repeatable. https://t.co/xSMY50OouT— Jaana Dogan at KubeCon ヤナ ドガン (@rakyll) October 10, 2021

Why give your devs time to refactor when you can rewrite the app every three years because no one on the new hires replacing your quitting devs is able to maintain it?— Gregory Primosch (@GPrimosch) January 17, 2022
A place I worked long term saw a few “rockstar” devs who complicated toolchains, trusted unestablished tech, said Yes lots/shipped early, but left before really having to deal with tech debt they’d introduced. They’re prolly still hopping every 18mnths thinking they’re awesome.— Kickstink (@kickstink) January 17, 2022
I was the one who had to deal with the fallout of things like these and let's day I hate Ninja/Rockstar devs like hell. Why do things by best practice when you can save 3kb by introducing three new tools in the deployment.... /s— Nils Hitze (@kojote) January 17, 2022
From a CEO:— Chris Herd (@chris_herd) October 3, 2021
“Every time a competitor mentions return to office our recruiters reach out to their people. We’ve hired 15+ of their engineers in the last 2 months.”

In cutthroat cultures, people kiss up and kick down. They protect themselves by currying favor with people in power and exploiting those without it.— Adam Grant (@AdamMGrant) November 16, 2021
In supportive cultures, people speak up and support down. They protect people without power by raising problems to those with it.
Politeness is not the same as kindness.— Adam Grant (@AdamMGrant) November 13, 2021
Being polite is saying what makes people feel good today. Being kind is doing what helps people get better tomorrow.
In polite cultures, people withhold disagreement and criticism. In kind cultures, people speak their minds respectfully.

The best software engineer I've ever worked with wasn't the best coder on the team.— Curtis Einsmann (@curtiseinsmann) January 17, 2022
But they were exceptional at:
🔹 Unambiguous communication
🔹 Simplifying; reducing complexity
🔹 Making the right tradeoffs
🔹 Building consensus
You are one bad manager away from hating your job. Don’t let a position at a company define you— Justin Garrison (@rothgar) January 30, 2022
Always invest in yourself
Keep learning new things
Keep meeting new people
Keep doing what you believe is right
Keep helping others
interviewer: can you explain this gap in your resume— milf twink (@SamAllenX) February 4, 2022
me: yeah that's a carriage return and a series of newline characters, like "\r\n\n" but depending on the language you're parsing it in you may need to escape that sequence

¿Por qué está siendo tan difícil conseguir el primer trabajo en #tech?— Freddy Montes (@fmontes) February 10, 2022

¿Todas las anteriores?
💁♂️ Career tip - Your manager plays a MASSIVE role in how successful you can be. Find a manager that supports your careers goals and values.— Lachlan Evenson (@LachlanEvenson) February 19, 2022
You don't owe any more loyalty to an employer than they show to you.— Adam Grant (@AdamMGrant) February 25, 2022
If they're willing to fire you without cause, you have every right to leave without guilt.
If they're not willing to invest in your well-being and success, you have no obligation to invest in theirs.
4) The leadership team's values are INCREDIBLY important— Brian Bourque 🚀 (@bbourque) February 26, 2022
The less ego at the top, the more everyone wins. Financially, personally and otherwise.
A business wins by focusing on what the customer wants, not someone's ego.
If software engineers are so valuable and in such high demand, then how come we have such obscene interviewing processes? Legitimately curious to know how this happened— Cain Maddox (@ctrlshifti) March 1, 2022
Early on in your software engineering career, getting promoted to the next level is mostly based on your work. After a few promos, many assume this will be the case going forward.— Gergely Orosz (@GergelyOrosz) March 7, 2022
Getting promoted beyond this level & as a manager depends so much on your peers as well.
trying to hire cybersecurity professionals and not having success? check:— meg west (@cybersecmeg) March 14, 2022
- is your job description realistic to the actual job tasks?
- are you asking for the level of talent you have the budget to pay fair market value?
- are you requiring 5 years experience for a junior role?

The Great Resignation is happening.— Michael Girdley (@girdley) March 24, 2022
What is your best advice to increase employee retention?

Fron a software engineer:— Gergely Orosz (@GergelyOrosz) April 6, 2022
"Here's the real reason I started looking for a new job.
I would spend 40-50 minutes waiting for XCode to complete a build, unable to do anything that time. Everyone told me it's just how it is. It was driving me crazy."
What many sw engineers don't realize:— Gergely Orosz (@GergelyOrosz) April 10, 2022
The majority of jobs do not hire you to write the highest quality code or produce the cleanest architecture.
They hire you to solve their business problems very efficiently. Sometimes this means high-quality code. Sometimes not at all.
Big company tip, before you change roles, ask when the last re-org was.— David Fowler 🇧🇧🇺🇸 (@davidfowl) April 13, 2022
