If you ever feel burnout, it is okay to have that. You are not alone. Let’s find out how burnout looks like and how to prevent that.
I started my tech career in 2019. And that time, I was still a college student majoring in math who was so enthusiastic about taking 25 credits in three months (or quarter-based). Additionally, I still worked part-time (20 hours a week).
I realized that I lost my productivity during the weekdays. However, I didn’t want to be seen as a weak woman. I was willing to come to work at 7 AM to…
This is a true story about me, a beginner who was too brave taking projects while also at the same time managing the three classes and volunteer work.
What does it mean?
Short story, I am a tech writer in one of the non-profit organizations in California state (but I work remotely from the Washington state area). I write the documentation to increase the experience of beginner coders and distill the technical information with ease and clarity.
I was lucky enough to be invited by the director of the organization to join the summer camp that was hosted for about…
Day passed by so fast, and school or campus will go back in person in a few months. Nevertheless, I could never move on with the things that I learn during this pandemic. Here are the key takeaways:
Before the pandemic, I always focus on cooking at 5 AM, commuting to school at 6 AM, and coming back in the dawn. Everything was about work, and having a break was only during the weekend. When a pandemic hits, I have more time to stay inside the house and take care of my mental and physical health.
When I hear about the hackathon, I always think this is such a heavy competition among smart or nerd people. However, the hackathon is not about the competition; but it is more about… participation and learning new things.
In this article, I would like to show you the tips on how to win the hackathon.
Hackathon is all about teamwork. It is better if you can brainstorm the problem together. I would suggest finding at least two or three people willing to learn new things together and people who can fill your skill gap. For example, if you are good…
If you have experience getting an offer to set up a call with the recruiter, what should you prepare? Of course, the recruiter will say, “Just prepare to introduce yourself,” or maybe “just be yourself.”
The informational call is different from the interview call. The informational call is more about an informal chat with the recruiter, which can be a tool to do more research about the company and the role you are applying for.
I got two informational calls with the different companies, and I would like to share the tips you should do a day before the call.
I am not a programmer but I am only a designer who got a chance to participate in such a great game jam community.
I never thought that I would participate in a game jam last weekend. I was uncertain that I had the skill to contribute to the team. I always asked myself, “am I sure to do this?” I don’t even know how to code using Unity and draw the 3D or 2D model. I only have one thing on my mind, “be brave” to start a new project that I haven’t done before.
It started with the…
Let’s find out!
Today I would like to talk about how I got an internship in a company as a student. The company that I applied to wasn’t a big company but it is worth it for me at least help me earning experience as a designer and worked with other developers and also a mentor.
There are many tips that I learned, especially during this uncertain time.
At that time, I was lucky enough because one of my friends in the group was looking for a designer. And she reviewed my work without me knowing about…
As an intern that never worked with a developer before, I had the struggle to get used to the new agile environment. I thought about this:
I started working as a UX designer in October 2019 and since then, I never knew how it looked like to be a part of the developer team. My teammates were all designers or project managers.
In early 2020, one of my network from the campus organization asked me to join her team as a UX designer.
I thought it might be good if I can work with developers. So, I accepted the 10-week…
