Worst case scenario, it will be a valuable new experience. Just don’t show up if you’re already happily married!Whether the apps have 10 users or 10 billion users, they cost the same amount to operate.So the dollars that come in from every new user flow much more directly to the bottom line of the balance sheet.All you have to do is hop online, go to their website, and fill out a questionnaire and add a photo or two.
But over the past few years, as smartphones made their way into every aspect of our lives, a new trend has evolved. Hundreds of developers flood into a room with 15–20 companies and “speed date”. As an interviewer, I saw many strategies that developers took.You get 4–5 minutes with each company and then you move on. It didn’t take learn to learn which were successful. Understandable, since this was a new experience for everyone in the room.Take a minute to complain and 25% of the time I’ve known you, you’ve been full of negativity. I can’t imagine a situation where complaining about your job makes you look good. If I’m a candidate, I’m avoiding all opinions about my current employer, good or bad. If I’ve only got four minutes to convince someone I’m worthy, I’m focusing on personality and skill set. One of the most surprising things from the night was the number of developers that didn’t want a job. If I were attending as a dev who had no intention of joining another company… But if I had to I’d be sure to lead off the conversation with that. No time to write more than a word or two about each candidate and a quick little ranking. I would bring a fun overview of my skills and experience with a small profile picture. In my experience, it would have put candidates on another level.
