&lt;p&gt;Most of us have been there. We&#39;ve applied for that job, and eagerly await the initial screening call with a tech recruiter. We then have to put our best foot forward in order to get us to the coveted tech part of the interview. Some of us make it past the initial stage and some of us don&#39;t. For those that don&#39;t, &amp;nbsp;we ask ourselves where we went wrong? This talk delves into just that. How do we make sure our best foot forward is the ideal one for the role we&#39;ve applied for. We know we want it, but what do we have to do?&lt;/p&gt;</p>
