Software Enginering Exam Complete

I've just finished my Software Engineering exam as part of my masters degree. It was hard but we'll see how it went. My next module is Software Development which should be fun. No rest for the wicked.

I Joined a Book Club!

Last night I attended an online book club. It was a zoom chat and the people were really friendly. The subject of the zoom chat was job interviews and I got a lot of really good times for next time I'm in an interview. Quite often when I'm nervous I resort to humor and someone explained how that can undermine job interviews. It's important to remain serious and let people know that you are serious about your work. The other thing I learned was to avoid having details on your CV about things that you don't remember well or aren't ready to talk about. Include things that your are very confident talking about.
