Preparing work samples for a job?

Posted 15 March 2013 - 07:04 PM

How exactly does one go about this? What do employers expect to see?
Here's what I have. I am a junior in college.

I think you are on the right track. Having it online allows future employers to have a glance at your work. They might then ask you couple questions on a particular project - what problems you had, how you solved them. They want to see how you arrive at the solution. Of course, this kind of stuff varies from employer to employer. One thing i would say, data structures are very important and common questions at interviews and because you implmented them yourself, you should be able to deal with this area of questions.

Good luck.

On the right track. I would put all your Project Euler stuff in one repository and have folders for different languages but that is just me. :P

Keep cranking away making more programs and if you open source them, keep them on Github.

Read back in the table of contents for Corner Cubicle and Student Campus.
The subjects of "How do I build a resume?", "How do I build a portfolio?", "How do I apply for a job?", "What do employers look for?", "How do I enter the grown up world?", has come up numerous times. Nobody wants to repeat the same answers over and over and over and over just because you can't be bothered with reading back a few threads.
