CHP013: Top Interview Questions & How You Should Answer Them

2018-02-17T17:17:54+00:00

In today’s episode we’ll answer the question: If I need to truly distinguish myself from the rest to get this competitive job, what would you suggest I do (other than reading these articles and forming my own responses) to stand out from the crowd? A random interview tip that just came to mind is that you should never turn down a chance to interview if you aren’t completely confident in your interviewing abilities. If you receive an offer to interview but you aren’t very excited about the role, take advantage to practice your shtick. Even if it falls through, you’re that much closer to knock it out of the park when an offer you’re truly pumped about finds you. Even if you’re happy in your current job today, give another company a chance to extend an offer that you can’t refuse.

How to Choose Between Online Learning Options. In today's episode, we're going to talk through a topic that we cover quite a bit in one-on-one coaching sessions on WehnerEd- how to choose between a four-year software degree, a coding boot camp, some of the online courses that are available such as Udemy, Udacity, Lynda, EdX, Treehouse, and others or even doing a self-taught class (YouTube videos, books or other resources on the internet). What are the pros and cons of some of those options and how do you determine which of those opportunities is the right direction for you to pursue your education.
