What did you learn to get the job? What things were you focusing on? How was the interview?
How should I prepare for the same route?

Thank you!

Hey Balogh,
I learnt Python and SQL to get the job even though i am not using it in my job it showed i am able to understand. Personally i think companies arent bothered about what you know, i think they care about being your willing to learn.
The interview went really well for me you should just express your desire to learn and try to show your maturity as you don't want a company to think they are hiring someone too young/immature.

Work experience and examples of your work too!

Glad to hear the interview went well Jack. Could be a bit awkward at work if it hadn’t! 😜

Hey Jack!
Thank you for taking the time!
These were the same things I was thinking about for the first time. But as it turned out, people in Hungary are quite not the same.
Maybe I should apply for jobs abroad..

Sure thing, over the last couple of years theres been a big push for apprenticeships in the UK. So maybe you could consider :)
