Seeking work as a developer

Negotiating your salary: understanding how to carry out a salary negotiation and what context your negotiation partner is coming from.

Searching for work after coding bootcamp

As an inexperienced developer, you’ll be at a disadvantage…but you can still land a job. It’s just harder.

This is an amazing thoughtful guide to getting your first job after bootcamp or a self-taught program.
