So I'm competing for two more invite-only internships/junior developer jobs in the next few weeks.
If you (or monkeys of the non-programming variety) have any ideas or amusingly bad advice at how to land a position that involves multi-day coding challenges to qualify for them, I'd be interested.
In related news, I suspected a program like this was in effect, so if you want a secret invite to work at Google you know where to do all your sophisticated programming searches: http://www.engadget.com/2015/08/26/googles-been-recruiting-programmers-based-on-their-search-habit/
What is it with all the invite-only, hush-hush hiring stuff in the programming world? Or did I just decide to enter the fold when they started doing this?
