In Topic: What drives you in what you like?

I didn't usually think on this but after I had my first son things changed a lot. Now I just need to stare at him for a while to feel motivated.

Ok, I think everything went well in the first interview as they requested more stuff from me (my translated diploma, a detailed portofolio etc). There is another doubt you guys could help me with perhaps: I see many job announcements describe the salary of the full year. This is not a common practice here in my country because there are several peculiarities such as the 13th salary, vacation related stuff. Anyway, what I was wondering is given a yearly value (for instance 50K) by German laws/work regulations how much should I divide it to know my monthly gross value. By 12 perhaps? Maybe by 13 like here in Brazil?


Thanks in advance, the info shared here really helped me so far.

This is probably a minor issue but I was thinking on one thing that never occurred to me before as I always did interviews in my native language: how do I say the names of the programming languages in English?

Should I say "c p p" or "c  plus plus" or whatever? How about C#, we say the equivalent to "c  sharp" here, is it ok?

No they were quoting me in pounds.


Oh, sounds good. Euro is like 3 to 1 to my local currency while pounds are 4 to 1 last time I remember checking.



The only real pain is the language


I think I can do ok in English and even in German I can do a tiny bit to survive - my father used to work for a German based company with a branch down here. Of course I would start learning it right from the day I get any confirmation on the job.



Sad to hear sad.png , statistically germany is one of the safest countries in the world, eg. according to wiki the homicite rate is

Brazil 25.2

USA 4.7

Germany 0.8



And I just found out that I live in the 23th most violent city in the world - Goiânia.



Thanks for all the info guys.

I'll let you know how I did and if I made to the next phases - you know, if I survive until there wink.png
