Matthew Turland:
On Remaining Employable
Dec 09, 2016 @ 10:49:40

Matthew Turland has an interesting new post to his site sharing some of his own thoughts on how you can stay employable as a developer with some great suggestions both on the technical and personal side.

Following my post on changing jobs, I communicated with a friend who’s in the market for a job. His circumstances inspired me to write a post for a slightly difference audience. So, here’s some advice on remaining employable as a developer.

His suggestions touch on topics like:

  • length of employment at one company (sometimes based on the type of company)
  • the balance between being a generalist and fitting only into a niche role
  • constant learning (and spending time "off the clock" doing professional development)
  • networking with other people

There's a lot of good content in the post so be sure to give it a read, especially if you're a developer that's been in the same role for a while...
