No, Just python is not enough to get job in software house.
here in this article i will let you know how you can get your first job in Software house,
1. Companies don’t hire a Python dev. They hire a problem-solver
If you have learned X and can’t do Y with the concepts you learned from X, you will not get hired. It’s impossible to understand what problems you’ve got to unravel once you get hired or what problem you’ll be solving 2/3 years from now. That’s why companies search for people that can take any problem and solve it by using coding techniques.
For example, you have learned the dictionary data structure. Now, if I give you a new situation (car dealership, book club, grocery store, or bank software, etc.) and you don’t know how to use the dictionary data structure in that situation, you will not get hired.
* Don’t just learn coding. Pay attention to why you are doing certain things. What else you could do to solve the problem.
* Solve as many problems as possible
2. Companies don’t hire a single skill. They hire a set of skills.
Just python is like plain coffee. It doesn’t taste good. You need to add milk, sugar, caramel to make it tasty. Similarly, don’t just learn python. Instead, you’ve got to find out a touch bit about other programming languages. You don’t have to be master at those. However, you need to know a little bit.
* You must learn a little bit about Database (SQL). How to structure a table. How to query data from a table. How to join data from two tables.
* If you want to become a Machine learning developer, you need to know the basics of Mathematical modelling, how to train a model and what are the different modelling approaches.
* Also, you could be just the front-end developer or the just database guy. However, you need to know how the full-stack software development works. How front-end, back-end, and database are connected.
3. Don’t just learn Python. Learn the overall Software Development process.
Unfortunately, most of the companies don’t want to spend time to train you about the overall software development process. That’s why you will hear companies are looking for X years of experience. To compete with that requirement…
* Build full-scale projects. Have at least 3 projects on your Github
* Don’t just copy the project from somewhere. Instead, try to build them yourself. While developing the project, you’ll grind to a halt numerous times. Try to find out solutions online. Struggles to find out the solution will make you a better developer.
* Deploy your projects on some servers.
* Get familiar with popular Python frameworks like Numpy, Pandas, Srapy, Django, etc. Play with those. Use them in some projects
* Write unit tests. Put enough comments on your code. Know how to organize code.
* Master at least one IDE. Learn keyboard shortcuts.
4. Don’t submit your profile. Submit the profile they want
Just before applying for the interview, confirm you’ve got an honest resume, updated LinkedIn profile. Then you should spend time to prepare for the interview.
Google and learn Python interview questions. If possible, buy a whiteboard and practice your answers on the whiteboard. If you don’t have a whiteboard write code on a paper.
Also, companies don’t care how great is your resume. If your resume doesn’t have 9 out of 10 things they are looking for, they will trash your resume.
So, before applying for a new job. Make sure your resume has most of the items they need . Even you just googled each topic and spend 2 hours on each topic. If you get the interview call, you ought to spend longer on those topics to perform well within the interview.
5. Don’t be hard core. Fake some soft skills as well.
To get hired you will need soft skills as well. Huh!!!
One truth is- you don’t need to be great in soft skills. You can just Google some answers and tell them in the interview. Just learn the following answers-
* What is your biggest weakness?
* Why should we hire you?
* If you don’t like a decision made by your boss what will you do?
* How will you resolve a conflict with your team members?
* Did you ever miss a deadline? What did you do?
* Is there any time of your life when you failed/ get embarrassed? How did you handle the situation?
So, don’t worry if everyone else is getting hired and you’re still trying to find employment . Just confirm that after each rejection, you spend 1 hour to seek out out what you’ll have done better to urge hired. Then spend the next 3–4 days to improve your skill on that topic.
If you retain doing this, you’ll become so good in the least this stuff that you simply will get promoted before your friends get their first salary raise.
