5 Steps to Professional Development as a Freelancer

5 Steps to Professional Development as a Freelancer This article was originally published by JetCake.

Freelancing can be isolating. The flexibility of freelancing is a double-edged sword: on one hand,
a professional can make their own hours and work from anywhere.
On the other hand, a freelancer often works from home or at odd hours
– and it can be lonely to work in that kind of solitude. 

Of course, loneliness can be resolved by going to a coffee shop to work or meeting up with
other freelancers for a coworking session. The more serious threat to a freelancer’s career
is the lack of professional development and mentorship that would otherwise
be available in a traditional office environment. It’s incumbent on freelancers
to seek out their own development and mentoring opportunities to continue
to grow professionally. Often, there’s no formal corporate ladder, no regular
one-on-ones, and no development benefits available to freelancers. 

For a freelancer seeking professional development a…

5 Best Companies for Developers in Silicon Valley

5 Best Companies for Developers in Silicon Valley This article was originally published by JetCake.
As we outlined previously, developer skills are in high demand. It’s a job seeker’s market, and luckily for many freelance developers, there are plenty of great companies hiring to choose from.
Importantly, while Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other big-name tech companies are still great places to work, they don’t rank as highly as in previous years. Freelance developers who are more discerning in their job search can find open roles at smaller companies that make culture a priority. Here are the five companies in Silicon Valley that employees rank highly for being great places to work.  ZoomZoom, a video conferencing tool, takes the top position on Glassdoor’s 2019 ranking of best companies to work for.

A developer’s technical skills are first and foremost their most important qualification. Vetting a software developer largely involves verifying their ability to code by checking their GitHub profile, using a coding challenge, or doing a code review. However, outside of a person’s technical ability, it’s important to make sure someone is the right fit. Research by Robert Half found that when new hires fail, 29% of the time it’s due to “interpersonal issues”— “either their soft skills weren’t up to par, or they caused conflict with colleagues or customers.” 
The job interview provides an opportunity to assess a candidate’s soft skills outside of a technical challenge. Ask these questions to learn more a…
