Christina did her first technical interview!

In her own words:

“I did a technical interview as a learning exercise. It was scary and awkward but I did it!”

I got my first web developer job! 👩🏼‍💻 There are a few really cool aspects about this job. The first is that I can work as much or as little as I want, whenever I want. I also don’t have to quit my full-time marketing job to do this job well. Now I’m learning and getting professional coding experience—and getting paid to do it. 😎 It’s also super affirming that they gave me this job at all. I did a lot of things that were outside of my comfort zone, like interviewing complete strangers to get advice and talking myself up to the head dev manager of my company. I felt really silly a lot of the time, and had (have) major impostor syndrome. It’s really rewarding to see all of those uncomfortable things pay off! So I guess I can officially call myself a developer now—I just need to get stickers for my laptop so everyone at the coffee shop knows too.
