Competing with Other Website Developers

A website developer

“Average Americans work well into their 60s, so workers might as well have a job that’s enjoyable and a career that’s fulfilling. A job with a low stress level, good work-life balance, and solid prospects to improve, get promoted, and earn a higher salary would make many employees happy. Here’s how Web Developers’ job satisfaction is rated in upward mobility, stress level, and flexibility.”

“The Coding Contests or Competitions provide you the opportunity to analyze your skills and proficiency, and to compare yourself to other programmers across the world. Apart from these, various scholarships, prizes, jobs, or internship opportunities are also provided to the participating programmers.”

“We already know that STEM talent is scarce. Instead of making your developer search even more difficult by only accepting the cream of the crop, why not find someone with the basic skills you need and then grow them in-house? Even experienced developers will have a learning curve with your company’s culture, tools, and strategies; hiring junior developers will give you the chance to discover and grow talent in your company’s image.”

“Are drive, determination, persistence, and curiosity, essential to your culture? Or, are you more low-key and relaxed about time management and deadlines? Whatever characteristics make up your culture, you want to ensure that the web developer will fit in.

For example, a brilliant web developer who has worked at a large financial institution may not do well at a startup. Why? A startup typically requires traits like versatility, adaptability, risk-taking, and a self-starter personality, but these may be less important at a large company.”

Benefits of hiring a junior

“Behind every interview, there is a team eager to welcome you as a new colleague; and they will be looking for someone as eager to join them as they are, someone who will give the best they have to offer. Although basic technical skills will be a must, there is just as much importance on the potential you show to become a great developer down the line.”
