We at Coding Ninjas are offering Admission & Scholarship Test to motivate, reward and financially assist deserving students.
Why take this scholarship test?
To answer this question, let me ask you few questions first.
-Are you truly passionate about coding?
-Have you ever felt that by pursuing your passion, you can change your life for good?
- Customize: Today, customization is the key to a successful venture. The same holds true for your resume. Customize your resume to suite the job specifications. Do not blabber about stuff which is of no relevance, highlight the key skills required for the job and how crafty you are with them. Following the same old resume template and forwarding it to every employer doesn’t work. Concentrate on the keywords used in the job description, tailor your resume to be the closest possible fit and voila, you’re there.
- Best comes first: One should always highlight the most relevant experiences as close to the top as possible. It should not be halfway down the page, and definitely not somewhere near the bottom. With a blink of an eye, you know the recruiter is looking at the very top of your resume.
- The strategic use of emphasis: Your resume will highlight your key strengths only if they are actually highlighted. Emphasize on the important stuff by the means of bold fonts and underlines. Personally, I advise everybody to use the 3 B Rule (Keep them bold, ❶ bulleted and brief)
- Keep it simple silly: Your resume is a highly professional document, do not dress it up like a birthday card. Use of multiple colors, gaudy texts and backgrounds will only make it worse unless you’re a graphic designer(where you can actually showcase your imaginations). Keep it simple, straightforward and subtle.
- Focus on the relevance: As your experience grows, your resume will become longer. What needs to be kept in mind is that the interviewer is not there to read a theater script, keep the content in resonance with the job description.
If you know you’re qualified for a position, your resume should make it easy for a recruiter to find evidence of this. Place everything appropriately, move your strengths to the top, and don’t be afraid to show off in the rest of your resume. Get going, make yourself a Ninja’s resume!
Dress well: An interview is a formal meeting, you will get judged by your clothes. You cannot just expect the interviewer to applaud you if you walk in with your checkered boxers and crappy hair. Dress well, be poised not too gaudy neither too shady just a mix of decent colors and what suits you well. You may cross my statement by saying startups these days do not care what you wear. Of course, there is casual clothing allowed at startups and big firms too but you are going for a job interview, not a pool party!
- Plan to arrive early: Getting to the venue at least half an hour early is always a plus. First, you do not have to panic about getting late and second getting used to the surroundings and people calms your nervousness down.
Have a firm handshake: Your first impression is the last impression. Walk into the room with grace and your head held high. There is nothing to be ashamed of, walk in your stride and have a firm handshake with the interviewers.
Tailor your resume and conversations well: Your resume should be ready to suit the job description. Same goes for your conversations do not talk or mention irrelevant stuff. Have contextual conversations around the skills and job. The interview is about you and your skills and you should leave no stone unturned to tell how you’re a perfect fit. Talk about your experiences and recent internships, get them interested into what else you do outside the box.
Ask questions: Do not hold yourself back. Your inquisitiveness may be the road to your success. When the interviewer asks you whether you have any questions or not, do not shy away. Ask about the company, ask about your job make them feel you’re actually interested in the job. If you get a chance to take their mail id or so, write back to them about the great experience you had.
- Do not overdress or underdress.
- Never-ever-ever be LATE for an interview, puts your punctuality and sincerity at stake.
- Being confident is good but over confident is not.
- Retrain from blabbering, listen carefully and answer. It’s okay if you do not know an answer, beating around the bush and wasting both your and interviewer’s time is not a good move.
- Do not be afraid, the interviewers will not beat you up. I know this is easier said than done. I’ll give you a quick tip- look at the interviewers while talking but defocus them or look at the gap between two eyes. This ensures eye interaction and also does not make you nervous.
- Do not have a lanky posture and do stuff like moving your legs and rubbing your hair. Walk on your heels, do not drag. Sit upright, no crossed legs or folded arms.
- Do not be casual and use the jargons we millennials use every day in our lives. No ‘I wanna’, ‘I Gotcha’, ‘Sumfin’ or facebook and Whatsapp language are permitted. Be careful of what you speak.
- Do not let your talks go haywire. eg. You are applying for a data analyst position and talking about your in-plant industrial skills will not be making sense. Have contextual talks, add your own elements and make it interesting.
- Don’t inquire about salary, vacations, bonuses, retirement, or other benefits until you’ve received an offer.
Show ’em that you are deploy ready: No matter how much your resume speaks, companies want to be certain you are adept at the skills required for the job. Many a times, the companies don’t want to hire to train you, they want you to jump in and do the job. Read the job responsibilities well in advance, tailor your resume accordingly and make them believe you are a plug-and-play talent for the job!
- Learn to code: Programming is an essential skill for tech professions. There are allotted scores for languages such as C++, Java, C#, Visual Basic and more. Basic knowledge of coding and problem solving is a must for the entrants. There’s no second way to that so why lose out on it? Start your coding journey today with us. Coding Ninja offers you an array of courses and bootcamps to choose from. It’s never too late to start if you want to.
- Interdisciplinary skill sets: Employers want their employees not only collaborate with a team of people from different departments but also to think like them to make working together easier. Showcase your cross disciplinary skills to the recruiter. Tell them about what else out of the box skills you’ve acquired over time. Read, study and know about the functions outside of yours.
- Love the company, do your homework well: Everybody wants a job which is more than a paycheck. Similarly companies want employees who believe in the company, are aligned with the goals and ideals and make work their passion. You always need to make that first impression right. Don’t apply for a job just for the sake of it. Study about the job role, company profile, work culture etc. and show what an ardent fan you are of the company and their ideals.
- Stay hungry, stay foolish: Your inquisitiveness paves your way to success. Come up with your own questions, don’t be a programmed robot. Your pro-activeness will showcase your personality. Besides, it’ll also make the recruiter believe you’re genuinely interested in the company and job.
- Personality: Now this is an aspect in which only you can help yourself. Make your speech and text uptight. Dress up well, have some chivalry and confidence to exhibit your potential. Your presence in the room is what makes a difference. Get noticed or be invisible.
