How looks process of finding job as software developer part 1 : What I looking for and where to look

This is a NOT a professional advice.
It based on my personal experience only and resources that I read on the internet.
It will contain many grammar mistakes.
Please drink double espresso and energy drink as an article is long and boring.

It is a most important question.
What do you want to do?
Always start with this question... Seriously.

Describe what you would like to do and write it down.

  • List of languages and technologies that you want to use in the new job.
  • Consider other important things like minimum salary ( do research about salary depends on your experience/location and be REALISTIC about it!), maximum commute distance, work hours, perks and so on 


There are  few ways to look for a job these days:
  1. Friends (best option)
  2. Companies website (especially, your dream companies )
  3. Job hunting Website ( specially offer by the company, not recruitment agency.
  4. LinkedIn is a great source to gathering information about company and possibility to find which company recruiting at the moment but speaking of LinkedIn.
  5. job centre plus in theory (in the UK) are quite useless for professional jobs but It can be a good place free advice if you needed.
  6. Recruiters
