A Complete Guide For Developers on Job Hunting, Acing the Interview and Landing the Job

People reach out to me all the time and ask how they can standout in their job hunt and land a new developer job.

I wrote The Standout Developer to answer those questions and share how I did it all.

I've packed this book with everything:

  • What I did to go from desperately looking for a job and getting NO responses to job applications to where I am today—Google, Facebook, PayPal, and LinkedIn and other notable companies reaching out to me so often I can't keep up with the flood of emails and queries.
  • My winning strategy to prepare for an engineering interview.
  • The insider information on what managers and recruiters are looking for in candidates that I gained being on hiring teams for public tech companies.
  • Learn how to create an audience, build a brand in engineering, a Twitter presence, as well as the LinkedIn strategies I've personally used with great success.
And there is more.

You'll also get access to valuable resources like 60+ places to job hunt, how to land a remote job, help to create your customized plan for a whiteboard interview, and the best algorithm prep resources. 

You'll get all future versions of this book.
