No one expects you to be perfect when you’re at the entry-level end of your career. But if you just show execution and show up consistently and do good work, that sets you apart so much.
When Dave graduated from college with a degree in economics, he wasn’t sure where he wanted his career to go. He used his self-taught programming skills to get an opportunity at a large corporation, but he soon realized the corporate environment wasn’t the place for him to flourish.
Then a serendipitous blog post connected him with a startup. And everything starting falling into place.
Writing that blog post won’t guarantee you get a job. But it increases the odds that something will happen somewhere. If you get enough activity out there, the odds multiply. It becomes almost inevitable that something will happen.
Now Dave is Crash’s own Head of Engineering. In this episode, he shares the stories of how he crashed his career and built his way to great opportunities.
