Junior Devs: How to stand out

As a junior dev, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd of other junior devs in the first few years of your career, let alone show off your skills and talents in their own right. You probably don't have much commercial code to point to, your GitHub account is a little emptier than you'd want, and even your resume is pretty brief. But there is one simple project you can do that can highlight your talents in a number of ways: build your own blog.

Changing it ourselves

Australia is an amazing place to call home. We have so much to celebrate about our nation, and it's important that we acknowledge our achievements and celebrate as a nation. However, out of love and respect for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island community, we here at Lookahead Search believe that January 26th is not the right date.

“Although I’m not coding on a daily basis, I’ve really enjoyed meeting developers and chatting with them. Having that technical background definitely helps me understand what developers and companies are after. I’ve also spent a lot of time giving people general advice on job searching and resume writing. They really appreciate that.”
