Discussion on: How much experience you had, when you got your first dev job?

I got one directly after my degree, it was a graduate role, so they expected someone that would need shaping and more mentoring than a more experienced developer.

The general interview was centred around knowing some C, the basics, and then some general problem solving elements.

Did you work with them as an intern before (while studying), so they took you right away after graduation? Or did you apply to a brand new company?

I applied directly to the company, they were looking to take on new graduats. They had an established intern format by the time I left (some 8 years later after working across products and working up to a team lead.) and then generally employed the interns but when I joined this program was in it's infancy.

I was very lucky (or they saw something they liked).
