Getting ready for a job interview — Noupe.com by Justin Johnson

As web designers and/or developers we have a certain luxury afforded to us with the location and times; where and when we work. Ours is an industry that allows us to sit at home and work at whatever times (and in whatever conditions) are convenient to us. However, in today’s economic times it can be harder to find enough contract work to support a comfortable lifestyle.

If you’re a recent college graduate or a freelancer looking to transition into work as a full-time designer/developer at a company, the following tips in today’s post will help you ace the interview and land the job. Note that a lot of the tips listed below are for larger scale companies. Whether small or large scale, most companies tend to interview in a more “standard” method — so we’ll stick to exactly those kind of guidelines.

pogoplug -- creating your own version of cloud computing for $129

The Pogoplug connects your USB drive to the Internet
so you can easily share and access your files from anywhere.

“Putterman, 43, began to wonder: Why hasn’t anyone created a gizmo that plugs into your personal hard drive and connects it to the Internet, allowing you to access your files directly, from your own hard drive, anywhere? You’d have no service fees or upload quotas.  A password system could grant chosen friends and colleagues access to your data, too.”
