Description of "Job Search in Software Development"

Job Search in Software Development is the result of over two decades of my experience as a Software Developer in the Silicon Valley, San Francisco, New York and more. During these years, I’ve interviewed widely and I’ve included in this book all the best strategies which worked for me in my own job search and interviews that resulted in multiple job offers at a time.


The book is for everyone who is interested in a software development career. Those new to computer software will find it helpful to follow along from Chapter one. Experienced software professionals will find it especially useful from Chapter six onwards, though the previous chapters will provide a good refresher. Other technology professionals and those working in non-technical positions in software companies will find value from chapter six onwards which covers the resume template, interview tips and resources, and career guide for success in the new job.


For those new to computer software, a broad overview of the software industry has been provided along with detailed descriptions of the top-paying occupations in computer software. The primary qualities that make a good software professional have been explained, so you can determine if a software career is a good fit for you. The technologies have been explained in simple language with recommended online resources for free software training and practice of each and every one of the broad technologies. For those interested in formal software education, there is a separate chapter that deals with affordable college degree in technology for working adults.

The subsequent chapters provide techniques for resume writing with templates and references, how to interview successfully in a variety of challenging situations, how to be successful in the new job with great relationships at work, and finally how to monitor and grow your career.


For readers opting in, I’ve also included a Free Career Worksheet which contains a simple and yet powerful Career Planner and a Multiple Offer Comparison worksheet.
