Japan English Teacher Turns Software Engineer with Wyatt Weisensel

In this episode I interview Wyatt Weisensel on how he went from being an english teacher in Japan to becoming a software engineer. Wyatt goes in-depth about what his 5 months of unemployment and job searching looked like during covid. He talks about how to stay relevant, the importance of side projects, how to take control of the interview, understanding your value, and the importance of mentorship. We go on to talk about how interviewing in the midwest is different and the same from big tech companies, FANG.  Making a decision or evaluating offers can be difficult, so Wyatt and I talk about why it's important to look at more than just salary when choosing  an offer.
