This might be your roadmap to maximizing your salary as a software developer.

The million-dollar question is: How do you negotiate your salary without losing the job offer or seeming greedy? Ashley did it, but first she had to avoid the most common salary negotiation mistake...

Most developers fall into different traps when it comes to negotiating a job salary. It might be due to hundreds of different reasons, but, what I often see, is: don't negotiating at all.

Developers also make the mistake of saying out loud their salary expectations, saying what they did earn in their last job and more.

If you're really feeling like this, then, Josh Doody is the perfect person to help you out on this one. On average, Software Developers improve their job offers by $46,150 when after Josh's negotiation techniques.

In today's video, Josh and I will discuss more about some amazing techniques when it comes to negotiating your salary as a software developer.

Programming Reality Vs Expectations (What You Think Vs. How It Actually IS!)

Programming reality can be very different from its expectations. #programming #programmingreality #programmingexpectations

If you're a new developer, or even an aspiring developer trying to break into tech, you probably think that, by becoming a programmer, you'll be coding all day long, writing code that will change the world.

You couldn't be more wrong.

Coding is much more than just writing code. When we expect to be writing code all day long, software development is much more about solving problems than it is to writing code all day long.

In today's video I'm going to tell you the reality vs expectations of programming and let you decide if this is the right career choice for you.
