Keep building, keep pushing, and keep caring. And let us know if/how we can help.

FEATURED COMPANY: FLUENT
It’s very worth noting that their data is considered “first-party,” which means that they themselves collect it, and you yourself provide it. This usually leads to more relevant marketing.
This is different from “third-party” data, which is often when your information is bought and sold without you knowing, and all of a sudden you’re receiving emails or ads for a service you never signed up for or the pet you never had.
Fluent is hiring for a few roles, but most relevant to the Entry community are their Media Analyst role (only 1+ years exp required, must <3 #s) and their Graphic Designer role (listed as 3+, but a strong portfolio might change their minds).
TECHNICAL INTERVIEW QUESTION
This week, rather than include a sample interview question, we wanted to share a really helpful “article” with you about preparing for coding interviews.
Brace yourself… it’s a 29-minute read according to Medium. And that doesn’t include the other resources and articles it links to.
But it’s awesome. Written by Yangshun Tay, a Front-End Engineer at Facebook, it covers everything from picking your programming language to practice question tips to interview formats to… you’ll see.
LIFE TIP (via SuccessConsciousness)
Always look at what you have done, not at what you haven’t.
Often you’ll begin your day with a list of several things to do. But at the end of the day, you might feel frustrated and unhappy if you haven’t been able to accomplish all of those things. This is unfair to yourself. Be sure to focus on what you did get done during that time and what you were able to accomplish.
Thanks for reading this week’s Entry!
