Actually, I have already begun. I have started to prepare for interviewing and working as a software developer. I have also decided to document my coding journey from this point forward. That is the purpose of this site and blog: berniceblogs.com
I currently have 2 other blogs:
Preparing and interviewing for software development work is going to take some daily work. Like any job, you have to do the basics:
- social media profiles
- interview practice
- salary research
- company research
Those are just some of the things I can think of right now. I am using a guide that was recommended: http://career.berkeley.edu/Tools/Tools
The other preparation that I need to do is for the Technical Interviews. For this I have purchased: Cracking the Coding Interview by Gayle Laakmann McDowell.
So I have a lot of work to do.
Fortunately, I enjoy programming. I have not been programming recently due to the combination of school and work. I rearranged my schedules so that I can make time to program again.
I decided to document as I go, without being perfect. I will work on my websites also as I go.
The thing with technology is it is always advancing and you have to stay up to date. There are always new skills to learn.
