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. 0:00 When people are looking for a job, they tend to focus only on the interview part, 0:02 without realizing, as you saw, that there's more steps involved. 0:06 Take time to search for jobs that match your skill set and goals, perfect each application, 0:09 prepare for the interview, and then you should be set. 0:16 But before I conclude this topic, I do want to bring up a few lingering thoughts. 0:19 First up is attire. People often wonder what to wear for interviews. 0:24 In the tech industry, there is no straight answer for this. 0:29 But it's easy to figure out. Gauge the company's culture. 0:32 Figure out how they dress and do the same. There's lot of ways you can do this. 0:36 Company blogs and social media streams. 0:40 For tech jobs outside the industry, the safe route is to go business casual. 0:42 But always do your research. 0:47 The last thing you want to do is show up in a suit, 0:50 when everyone else is in a t-shirt and jeans. People always ask when they should follow up and how. 0:52 If I don't hear back, my personal method is to follow up with an email 2 weeks after. 0:58 If I still don't hear back, 1:03 I wait another week before calling or getting in touch with them in a more direct way than email. 1:05 Hopefully, that should be a good primer on how to interview in the tech industry. 1:11 Don't be afraid, especially if you're just starting out learning out how to code. 1:15 We'll teach you everything you need to know. 1:20
