Wrapping Up1:23 with Pasan Premaratne
Now that you know how to prepare for and succeed at an interview, let's wrap up by going over a few additional topics like attire and communication.
[narrator] So that's the interview process in a nutshell.
When people are looking for a job, they tend to focus only on the interview part,
without realizing, as you saw, that there's more steps involved.
Take time to search for jobs that match your skill set and goals, perfect each application,
prepare for the interview, and then you should be set.
But before I conclude this topic, I do want to bring up a few lingering thoughts.
First up is attire. People often wonder what to wear for interviews.
In the tech industry, there is no straight answer for this.
But it's easy to figure out. Gauge the company's culture.
Figure out how they dress and do the same. There's lot of ways you can do this.
Company blogs and social media streams.
For tech jobs outside the industry, the safe route is to go business casual.
But always do your research.
The last thing you want to do is show up in a suit,
when everyone else is in a t-shirt and jeans. People always ask when they should follow up and how.
If I don't hear back, my personal method is to follow up with an email 2 weeks after.
If I still don't hear back,
I wait another week before calling or getting in touch with them in a more direct way than email.
Hopefully, that should be a good primer on how to interview in the tech industry.
Don't be afraid, especially if you're just starting out learning out how to code.
We'll teach you everything you need to know.
