  • Freelance contract
  • Internship
Getting someone to respond to an ice-cold email can be tough.
In fact, maybe you’ve heard, or thought:
“Cold email is dead.
It’s SPAM!
I’ve heard these complaints a lot. But I disagree.
Everyone writes cold emails, but who’s actually good at it?
I moved to Sweden & many other opportunities in my career, which I’ve achieved through cold email.
‘Cold email’ is an ugly term.
No one wants to send them, no one wants to receive them. But, when used correctly, cold emailing can be a powerful lead generation tool for you.
Each line of a cold email must persuade a reader to read the next one, all the way through to your close.

2. Mistakes You Should Never Make When Starting a New Software Developer Role
Are you about to start a new job?
If so, by now, I’m sure at least some of that initial excitement of being offered the job has worn off and is starting to be replaced by feelings of nervousness or anxiety.
Am I right?
Well, you’re not alone.
Even for the most confident of Developers, starting a new job can be hugely nerve-wracking, and that’s completely normal.

4. Don’t expect hand-holding
5. Don’t try to change things
6. Don’t be dishonest
7. Not writing things down
8. Turning down happy hour
9. Talking too much about past successes

Extra Tip: You want to pay more or less when buy something?
Most people try to negotiate the lowest possible price when paying for a service.
 That’s a mistake in my opinion.
Because you may save some money but are likely to be the lowest priority for that service provider as a result.
On the flipside, if you pay a bit MORE than the typical price, you become that service provider’s highest priority.
You’ll wind up getting way more value for your money.

One Humble Request
At Last, You won’t be getting these emails unless the list is warm enough.
This means Google, Yahoo, and other email providers want to make sure we are friends… But how do we do that?
  • Add me to your contacts (most email providers let you do so by hovering over my photo/email)
  • If this is in your spam folder, report it as “not spam”
  • If it’s in your promotions tab on Gmail, move it to your main inbox
  • Lastly, please reply to this email with whatever you want. In fact, tell me what’s your biggest obstacle in software development and I’ll be happy to reply back with advice.
