📼For a technical application process, social media is not enough. Tip #1: Have a formal resume. Your LinkedIn is great, but also have a formal resume handy. You must keep your LinkedIn updated with all of your technologies and recent projects, but it’s important to have a formal resume as well for when you're applying directly to the company.

📼In a technical application process concreteness is a value. Tip #2: Be specific. When reaching out, know what you're applying for. Being very specific about what you're targeting will greatly increase your chances of moving forward. When reaching out to a recruiter, let them know that you have already applied for a certain position and that you also want to showcase some of your skills to them.

A Technical Application Process Requires An Appropriate Language - Tip #3: Use Technical Communication

The biggest tip with interviewing is technical communication. You want to ask clarifying questions before you even start coding. It's also important to state all the assumptions to make sure that you fully understand the parameters of the question. And lastly, you want to essentially think out loud. Show the interviewer how you want to solve the problem.
