You apply to numerous jobs daily.

No answer.

Or.

The reply:

“Thank you for your application for the [job position title] at [company’s name]. …, unfortunately, we have to inform you that this time we won’t be able to invite you to the next phase of our selection process.”

You get frustrated.

You are not able to figure out how to at least make it to the interview stage.

The problem

First of all, you should know that You are not the problem here.

Then, what’s the problem?

It’s the current hiring process.

Usually, these days companies use ATS systems for processing job applications. ATS is an emotionless algorithm that parses resumes based on the keywords and other matching things with the Job description. …


Learn to win by embracing your failures…

You might have heard the term ‘failure’ from the people around you.

It’s attributed to defeat, losing, or similar meanings.

People think that if you fail, everything ends up. It’s a separate discussion. But what’s real is that people around you kind of want to ‘force’ that failure on you.

Let’s see how to deal with that situation:

Success is not the only option

The world doesn’t end with a defeat. There’s much more than that. There are other options too. Give yourself some space to explore other things as well.

“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is a delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. …


It’s damn easy. You can do it!

Writing is a creative process.

It’s an art. It takes time to write good content and then building a reputation on top of that.

You might be struggling with writing content that people like, share, and want to read again and again. Remember, creative things take time to come into existence.

According to research by Content Marketing Institue about B2B Content Marketing, only 5% of B2B Content Marketers are very successful in their content strategy. There are a lot of things that collectively contribute to a writer’s success and failure.

But the most important thing in this is the content itself. Your audience engages with your content and you build your credibility with that. No one knows you, what you do or how good you are at your subject. …

As engineers, we want our applications to be decoupled from each other and follow an architecture that’s distributed in different parts or services. This makes it easy to disintegrate, replace, or remove different parts without affecting the overall functionality of the applications and software systems.

Messaging is an important part of software systems. It’s a norm to send or receive messages in text and other formats to-and-fro your software system. This is where message brokers come into play.

What they do is that they manage all of your messages by exposing a simple API for you to send and receive messages. Internally, message brokers use a queue to manage all the messages and work on the principle of LIFO (Last-In, First-Out). …

“If I was able to raise the capital, I would’ve pursued my dreams.”

“You don’t get it because you don’t understand my situation.”

“I can’t achieve Y…Uhm…Since I don’t have Y.”

You might have heard these kinds of excuses from people around you.

Two Types of People

Generally speaking, people are of two types.

People having a growth mindset and those who are opposed to that. People with a growth mindset are the ones who have vision, dream, and goals they work towards.

I call them successful people.

Because they might not be successful at that time.

Or maybe they might not be able to achieve quickly, but they have the most important trait of people who embraced success. …

I’ve seen a lot of people not getting a job, rejected, or something like that.

I agree that there are a lot of challenges here and everywhere, but, nowadays there are so many opportunities around you that you can avail and really shine in your field. If you are a software engineer, there are many hackathons, coding competitions, open-source events where you can participate for free without any pre-requisites of hard and fast coding skills, and incredible genius.

If you are a content writer, write content-writing contests or similar keywords in Google, and you’ll see thousands of results that can open up doors of opportunities for you. …

Everyone follows Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and thousands of other successful people. People see all the aura around their personality but neglect the things that were key in their growth. We want to be icons like them and idolize their current position, status, and reverence.

But did you ever think that what are the three key things in their lives?

Persistence

If you read biographies or life accounts of the most successful people, you’ll find that one of their most important habits is persistence.

No one gets fame, success, and honor in a day. All that glitters is not gold. …


A letter to you

I hope you are doing well.

I am not clear about what should I write to you in this letter but I’ve planned to keep things simple so that it’s easier for you to understand them.

First of all, let’s talk a bit about life.

What’s life?

It has been a mystery for ages and no one has a clear answer to it yet. Everyone has tried to put forward their perspective but we don’t know the final and authentic proof of anything yet.

Life’s sometimes really difficult. Sometimes it’s really easy.

We go with its flow. Some of us are able to change its coarse while the majority is not. Those few are the ones that lead others in the future. …

Every year there are thousands of aspiring software engineers who graduate from universities, bootcamps, and different courses.

Since they have put a lot of effort into studying and learning to code, so, most of them are really talented. They deserve to be in better places and lend a good life but unfortunately, a lot of them are left out due to not knowing how things work in this field.

In this post, I’ll be sharing things that helped me to get to a better position in my career, so, they might work for you too.

You know like every field, software engineering is competitive. You need to be really good at certain things to gain visibility in this domain. …

Everyone wants to live a worthful life. They want to do something. At least for themselves, for the people, and for their families.

A lot of people struggle in finding the ‘worth’ behind their lives. They aren’t able to find their purpose. They aren’t clear about the things they really enjoy or are passionate about.

A survey organized in late May by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago found that a record number of Americans currently consider themselves as “Not too happy”.

“ You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” …
