Ian Douglas joins host Victoria Vasys for a remote episode- live at Stream (GetStream.io)! Ian is Developer Relations Lead at Stream & Turing's very own career coach mentor. Ian has been working with Turing students for about 3 years, helping to refine resumés, mentoring, conducting mock interviews & now even training Turing graduates to run their own mock interviews. We discuss effective resumé writing, what to expect in the mock interview process, what to do if you freeze-up during an interview, why white-boarding as an interview standard should die, networking, how to know if a company is right for you, and much more.

Thanks to Ian for hosting us at Stream, taking the time to chat, and gifting us some sweet swag (see Victoria for a free shirt before they run out!). And thanks to Kevin MacLeod of Icompetech for the lovely tunes he shares royalty-free. 

Enjoy the show & as always, leave some feedback on Twitter @turingpodcast or shoot us an email at turingpodcast@gmail.com. Cheers.
