re: You Deserve to be a Software Developer VIEW POST

Hell yeah Mike! :-)

Senior is also a word that means something different to different organizations. Some call senior devs people with 5+ years of experience, some 7, some 10.

I have no qualms to admit that I was hired at my first real fulltime job for two reasons: I was visible on Python local mailing lists AND I knew someone at the company.

Knowing someone who knows someone is still the easiest way to get a job interview at least.

Thanks, you reminded me of this post and the discussion that followed:

 

I was very tempted to write about how deeply rooted referrals are embedded in our "meritocratic" hiring, but thought the article wouldn't be focused enough then.
