Why do you suspect it was your over-confidence, and not that someone else may have been an even better fit?

Any advice for "passive" job seekers?
T. Cambron

did you have any success getting leads through networking events, like technical meetups?
Allison Luzader
35:24
Can you elaborate on reaching out via LinkedIn? I’ve applied for a few companies that I don’t have a connection to - is it a bad idea to reach out completely cold to a stranger?

As a new software engineer, how did you respond if interviewers said, “Do you have industry experience” or “We need to know that you can code collaboratively in a workplace” even if it’s a JR position?
megha
38:16
What does that mean when recruiter ask “where are you in interview process or which round with other company”?
milena.otasevic
39:36
Perfect!
Avodah

Also a neuro major here, also did 3 years of research before deciding not to go to grad school. How did you approach the question of "why are you here?" (aka not doing neuro stuff?) without sidetracking the conversation?
Tamara
40:34
Where do you look for contract work, any advice :) I live on the east coast…
milena.otasevic

Christine
45:06
Do you have a favorite way to practice for coding challenges?

Elisha

Thanks for the presentation - a lot of your don’t I have been doing. Couple questions - How long was your job hunt? How many informational interviews did you do? And how did you keep yourself empowered and in action? I notice I go through different spaces. It can be easy to displace time in job hunting for other projects I am involved in, volunteering, travelling etc. particularly when I struggle with clarity of what I want to do next.
Kate Zimmerman
56:14
there are also Slack teams that can be good for networking
Elisha
57:09
@kate - which Slack Teams are these?
megha
57:14
Is it considered bad, to send linkedIn request to the employees of the company, you are interviewing (phone or onsite) with?
Mane
57:57
Thanks so much! :)
Kate Zimmerman

@Elisha: I’m in a tech leadership one (Rands Leadership) - which I recommend if you’re interested in management roles. Other than that, there’s WiTChat (Women in Tech Chat). And probably a bunch of language/tech/role related ones you could find
Beth
59:33
Thanks so much, Nadine!
Allison Luzader
01:00:51
Where do you recommend looking for job postings?
Elisha
01:01:36

Karlyn Murphy
01:04:08
Do you have any resume do/don’t suggestions for developers? What worked for you?
Kate Zimmerman
01:04:55
WiTChat (http://witchat.github.io/) - best way to get an invite is from someone in the chat (if you’re interested, send me an email - katwzim@gmail.com - and I’ll ask in the channel)
Avodah
01:05:20
Tip for LinkedIn, you have more ability to connect with folks you aren't already connected to on LinkedIn from the mobile app
Karlyn Murphy
01:05:40
yep!
megha
01:05:52
Thank you !!
Shelly
01:06:22
What are your general rules of thumb regarding following up? How many times, how long before taking silence as a rejection? (i.e. post-phone screen, in-persons)
Kate Zimmerman
01:06:57
Rands Leadership: http://randsinrepose.com/welcome-to-rands-leadership-slack/ (they’re good about keeping up with requests - there’s also a private lady-leaders channel that you can get an invite to if you identify as a woman or non-binary
