My first dev job was found though the local community, one of the developers from a startup announced the job and I sent him a message, after that we set up a date for a presencial meeting. Getting there, I talked with the rest of the team and got the job. When I was applying, I did not met all the requirements, but I was willing to learn them. The job was remote and I had no previous experience, I was at the middle of my under graduation and the knowledge that I got was from udemy courses + friend help.
That’s amazing! Did it work out well?
Kind of, I learned what was left but had trouble with the application itself. I think that I don't fit that well with remote, at least not at the currently level that I am. Before that job, I had a few interviews, from internship for junior level and got a great experience with them. That was some jobs that were looking for a higher level, but used lower to announce them so that they could pay less. My advice for you is: apply for the job if you meet at least 50% of the requirements, cause some job require easier tasks and could have someone to help you.
Interesting, I’m really intrigued by remote, but sure I’ll need some type of co-working setup so I’m not alone every day.
And Thanks Willane! I’ll take that into account.
