A Complete Guide For Developers on Job Hunting, Acing the Interview and Landing the Job

Trying to land a high paying job in tech? Want companies reaching out to you?

Job hunting as a developer is stressful. Dozens of people apply for the same job and you're competing with CS grads and people with years of experience. 

I remember applying endlessly for jobs when I started out and companies sending me rejection letter after rejection letter. And that was if the company even replied at all.

If you're tired of the endless job search and feeling like your resume isn't being seen, this book will help you craft a great resume that stands out and get it seen by the companies you want. I'll share how I got companies like Google, Facebook and LinkedIn reaching out to me by creating an online presence.

If you're struggling with technical interviews, my book will share how I prepare for algorithm interviews, how to create a study schedule, my secrets to the coding take-home challenge, and more. 

You'll learn how to create a powerful blog, speak at a conference, negotiate and evaluate offers. And much more.
