So I landed this interview with a company that provided military simulations, to work as an android intern (mobile). And man was I intent on getting it, I could only dream of my first job being as a dev, for a company that developed cool software. 😯

I show up, pull out my laptop, go over some of my projects (crap at the time, since I was 16, but ChessAI ftw) and also show them an android app I developed.

Then, I pulled out my calculator and showed them a clock I'd made on it. That's probably when I lost them... ☹️

They asked me a couple questions about software development, like if I knew what agile was, or if I unit tested my code (didn't even know they existed at the time ☹️ ) , etc.

I had done research on the company and asked them questions about specific software and so on, also asked about what working there would look like, etc.

They never called.

I called.

They never answered.

😭

Ended up washing dishes. Honestly, fuck my life.

    The first few sentences sounded like it could be Bohemia Interactive Studios (BIS)

    But then the agile and unittest questions.

    Naaa, can't be BIS, they wouldn't ask that!

    A previous interview keeps pinning me on TDD and unit test I had enough and told them it’s useless(think I used the word bulls*t) and wasting man hours, then went on explained my (bullshiting)theory on testing. They were surprisingly convinced and gave me an offer. I didn’t go..
