***OPEN ME*** My first interview as a web developer was a disaster. Here’s what happened: I found an opening at a WordPress/PHP shop in Austin, TX. “I ain’t moving back to Texas,” I said to myself. The heat was just too much.
Well, as luck would have it, it was a remote job. I could eat all the Tex-Mex I wanted without fearing the heat, woohoo! I applied. The cards were already stacked against me the minute I submitted that ‘apply now’ button.
In this video, I share with you the few simple words I uttered to guarantee that I would absolutely not be getting a callback.
