How do I negotiate for the best terms on a software engineering offer when I don't have another offer to compare against?
Hello! I am a college senior with an offer from a decently large enterprise tech company to be a backend software engineer after graduation. I wish I had some sort of sign-on bonus or some relocation funds with my offer, because I'm not sure I can afford the first month of rent when I haven't...
I spent most of my software engineering internship not programming. Will that hurt me in interviews for full-time roles?
I'm a CS major in college and I am about to finish up an internship in backend software engineering at a division of a very large tech company. Most of my time was spent reading code, reading documentation, learning to use internal tools, writing configs, writing test cases, minor bug fixes,...
What types of software engineering roles will allow me to spend the most time actually writing code?
Hi everyone. I'm a CS major in college, about to become a senior, and will be looking for a full-time role soon. I feel like I'm on track, and am considering what type of software engineering role I'd like to pursue. One thing that I've learned from my summer internship is how much of software...
How much of the time is a backend software engineer actually writing code?
I'm a CS major in college and I am about to finish up a 12-week internship in backend software engineering at a division of a very large tech company. I'm a little surprised at what % of my internship was actually spent writing code: just about 3 of the 12 weeks. The other 9 weeks were mostly...

Any tips for an interview as an office assistant?

What's a good typing speed?
I took an online words per minute typing test a few times, and got between 85 and 90 each time. Is this a good speed? Is this something I can put on my resume? #career-counseling #resume #resume-writing #evaluating-resumes
What's more cost effective- minimum wage in an area with low cost of living, or an internship in a high cost area?
I'm trying to figure out what to do with my summer, with the knowledge that I have to pay for my own housing and all my living expenses. I'm a college freshman, so the internship probably wouldn't pay me too much more than a regular minimum wage job. Another possible option would be to stay in...
How do you enjoy life as a premed?
I really hate all the restrictions I have on myself as a premed. Basically all the things I did to get into college (fancy extracurriculars, stellar grades, 20+ applications, standardized testing, etc.) I have to do again to get into med school- but with a job on top of it. And I'm majoring in...
Is it better to double concentrate or get an BS?
I am trying to decide whether I should receive an AB in Computer Science, and also pick up a degree in Economics, or if it would be better for me to get a BS in Computer Science only. I'm not sure of two things: 1) if a Bachelor of Arts gets as much respect as a Bachelor of Science, and 2) if...

What is the homework like at an elite college?

When an interviewer asks "Why should we hire you, compared to all the other candidates" what should I say?
I have no idea how to respond to this question since I'm a very inexperienced in the job market. I want to apply for web development jobs. What do I say if someone asks me this? #interviews
