About the Book

It can be pretty daunting applying for web development jobs. How do I create a CV/Resume? What can I expect during the interview process? What questions will I get asked? I've put my experience of being an interviewer (and, interviewee) into this short book to help you land your dream web development job.

Who is this book for?

No matter if you're a self-taught developer, college graduate, or recently completed a Bootcamp, you will find something useful in this book.
