This post is the second part of my journey to become a Happiness Engineer at Automattic. In this post, I’ll share with you my experience in the Trial, the most exciting journey of the entire application process.
Yesterday I had a very interesting discussion with one of the volunteers at the WordPress.com support forum and an Automattic’s staff about a topic posted on the forum. And thanks to this topic, I learned about domain forward with masking.
Looking back in the month of September, I have a feeling that it’s a slow and unproductive month. However, my progress tracking notes on my journey to become a Happiness Engineer seems to say otherwise!
It’s been a month since my last update on my journey to become a Happiness Engineer at Automattic. I’ve achieved a lot in the month of August and I’m quite satisfied with my overall progress. So here comes my monthly recap on what’s been done to improve my skills required for the job.
It’s been over a week I added a checklist for myself to work on my second application on becoming a Happiness Engineer at Automattic. So now I’m going to review my progress and share with you a few achievements that I obtained during this period.
There’s easy learning like spoon-feeding all the information required to you and there’s another way of learning which requires a certain amount of pain so you would remember well.
I learned a lesson recently in a hard way. After I was rejected by Automattic, I reviewed the CV and the assignment I submitted to them and I realized there were so many mistakes I made in both the CV and the assignment!
Background: I sent in a job application for Happiness Engineer at Automattic on 12th July 2018. So this post is about the assignment I was required to complete and submit in order to be considered for the next stage of the whole hiring process, i.e. the first interview.
