So, I've got a job interview tomorrow for a part-time frontend developer job, and I have no clue as for what to do.

Any of you got some fantastic tips I can take with me? I'm really nervous and been unemployed for so long - I need this!

Help me /GD/, you're my only hope.
(Bad Star-Wars reference... Sorry.)

- Be prepared to talk about your work and what you can do. Have some examples ready.

- Project a positive attitude from the moment you walk in the door. Be friendly, smile, show enthusiasm whenever someone or something new is introduced to you and ask questions.

- Have a few "weaknesses" in your mind in case they ask but find a way to spin them into positives. i.e - "I'm not so good as this, but it's on the areas I'm looking to improve and is part of the reason I chose this company as I can gain experience in blah blah blah-"

- Turn up at least 10-15 minutes early. They'll call you in when they're ready.

- Willingness to learn and improve is often more important than pure skill so it's good to reinforce this. Pointing out areas in your old work you would improve given your current experience and skill level for example. I do that a lot.

- Look clean and presentable (obvious one)

- Highlight any other relevant skills you have which can help you appear more versatile.

Most of these points are probably quite obvious but anyway hope it helps. Good luck!

I'm going for a front end job too, but I've mostly worked with back end php/ajax stuff. Do you think I'll get it?

Just find yourself some really striking artwork for the image, then focus on the heading and other texts. You could also add a barcode, month of release, current issue number etc. to add more elements than just text

When in doubt, shade every element of your project with gradients. If you want to be really detailed, make the strokes gradients too. Contrasting colors make the overall design appear more realistic.

It's aesthetics are ok. Sleekness and fluidity indicate freshness, so you're probably a startup?
But it doesn't tell much more about your brand. What are your products, goals?

Logitech MX or M705 are both great. I like Apple's Magic Mouse a lot too.

After three years, my mx mouse dtarting to have a double click issue...no money to replace the mouse...
>>
>>237506
Don't listen to this nerd

Can't say anything about mx category, but I've had m705 for a few days and the precision on it is fucking abysmal. The only way I could use it was set pointer speed all the way down, and even then it would be jittery sometimes.

Mx is supposedly better, because of their darkfield tracking technology which is lacking in m705

Why do you use proprietary Photoshop?
Is there any reason not to just use Gimp or Krita?
51 posts and 4 images submitted.
>>
>>235508
Fuck off freetard.
>>
>>235514
No, seriously. Are there good features on Photoshop that Gimp and Krita lack? Do companies expect you to use that specific program? I wouldn't insist people bend over backwards for Free as in Freedom software, but when opensource alternatives exist, I'm curious why people don't insist on them, especially when they cost no money.
>>
>>235515
If you work for a respectable company/client and hand them a fucking GIMP file or whatever you'll be laughed at then fired. 99% of workflows in this industry are structured around Adobe programs running on Apple computers. If you want a job, deal with it.

Unless your ambitions are to do freelance work on Craigslist for the rest of your life, in that case go ahead and use shitty free software.
