Learn Python with Talk Python's Python courses

Lessons from 100 straight dev job interviews

Episode #123, published Mon, Jul 31, 2017, recorded Wed, May 31, 2017.

This episode is carbon neutral.
What if you could take the experience and insight from 100 job interviews and use them to find just the right job. You'd be able to weed out the bad places that are not the right fit. You'd see that low-ball offer coming a mile away and move right along.

But, no one could really do 100 consecutive interviews, right? That'd be a full-time job in and of itself!

You'll meet Susan Tan who did just that.
