Codex4041267915dAsk the companies you interview for for feedback, both when you get the job and not get the job (I don't see it as failing).
alex92215dSeems that the companies that you applied to are not very professional. I think that each interview participant should get a yes or no answer. Plain silence is not very professional. BTW, how long have you waited so far? I consider 2 weeks to be the maximum I would have to wait. 1 week is decent.
ravijojila29615dCouple of thoughts:
First, you're competing with people. If you and 50 more do the same in the first round, some companies won't call all for second round.
Second, there are different ways of solving a problem, and not all solutions are created equal.
And finally, some recruiters won't tell you what you could've done better, possibly leaving you with impression that you aced the interview.
In conclusion, keep up the good work, continue learning, continue applying. It took me 8 months to find a great place.
As mentioned, ask them for feedback. It doesn't hurt to go above and beyond with practical too. Maybe throw an Easter egg in too (only if they're a cool kind of company. I once put the konami code in a webapp and I got the job :).
And good luck!
mundo03342315dNow days it is more a bout the fit than the knowledge... Of course a minimum knowledge and willing to improve needs to be proven.
So here are my suggestions:
Don't lie, always be super honest about your knowledge and what do you do to be better
Ask questions, as many as you can ok the environment, rules, git, anything that will affect your work.
Be relaxed, like when talking ti a friend, show how you really are, be authentic. No one wants to hire a fucking liar false piece of shit.
Also ask for feedback and read through their bullshit
hitko31415dMake sure you prepare for the interview in every way; this includes learning as much as you can about the company - check out their website, try out their apps on your phone, see if they've posted any photos of their last team building trip, see what tools they use, etc.
And once you're at the interview, keep in mind the company is usually looking for a person to fill a gap in their team, not just some coder.
