What do they Look for?

While interviewing for a junior front end developer / internship, your interviewer won’t expect you to know everything. They won’t be expecting depth of knowledge. The most important qualities that they would be looking for in an ideal employee are as follows.

  • Ability and confidence in building simple things.
  • Ability to break bigger problems into smaller problems.
  • Google and find solutions to these smaller problems.
  • Willingness to work hard and eagerness to learn.
  • Know how to start projects and continue making progress in chunks.

About Me

I think I have reasonable experience to back the claims above.

  • I’ve interviewed at many, many companies.
  • Have been involved in recruitment processes.
  • Have interviewed candidates as well.
  • Worked on a Resume Parser at my previous company. Was in constant touch with recruiting teams and I now think I have a fair idea of what they look for.
