The Top Programming Languages, Ranked by Job Demand, Popularity, More

Apparently, the most sought after language is Java. Not that surprising considering it powers quite a few things, including Android and anything running Android (well, to a point, I guess since it doesn’t run Java in the same way that you would run the JVM on, say, your desktop.) Still, gives me a reason to brush up on it. And perhaps work towards a Java certification. I did have J2CP, but that was years ago, so I’m not sure if it is even valid any more.

Although it surprises me a little that Ruby and Perl aren’t on this list.

Job Interviews

Something interesting I found out yesterday. I was clearing out some old junk on my laptop and I came across a recording of a phone job interview I had a long while ago. Curious, I listened to it, and cringed. I made so many mistakes on that interview I couldn’t believe it, but during the interview, I felt I did pretty well. Surprisingly, I got the offer. I was in that job for a few years before being made redundant.

So, point of the post. If you can, record your interview if it is a phone one, and you can refer back to it later like I did and learn from it. If you got an offer, you can see what helped push your image across. If you failed to get an offer, you can see if you can determine why you didn’t get it by listening as a third-person.

5 Myths about Introverts and Extraverts at Work | LinkedIn

A really nice article about Intro and Extraverts. My favourite quote:

General Charles Krulak, the former commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, introduced himself to me as an introvert too. When Krulak took over as the CEO of a bank, he sat down with his vice presidents and said, “Everyone around this table has forgotten more about banking than I know. And because of that, I’m going to need and seek your advice. I may not always agree with you, and if I don’t, I’ll let you know why. If you get to a point where you don’t feel you can come to me, I’ve failed as a leader.”
