Employers usually start a search for a software engineer with a resume screening, so having a concise, well structured resume, listing your qualifications, previous experience and technical skills is vital.
Software engineers with management experience and skills are paid the highest.
Hiring processes for software engineers often differ by company, department and team. Usual interviews include technical q&a, resume review, pair programming, whiteboard exercises and architecture design. This process can sometimes be covered in 1 day, but it usually takes place over several weeks. You can use the hiring process to better understand the culture of the team you will be joining. Interview processes that test for skills you will use on a daily basis, and put you in front of several different members of the company are usually better as they lead to better outcomes for everybody involved.
