The pMD Blog

Welcome to the
pMD Blog...

where we cover interesting and relevant news, insights, events, and more related to the health care industry and pMD. Most importantly, this blog is a fun, engaging way to learn about developments in an ever-changing field that is heavily influenced by technology.

Interviewing 101 - Be Yourself!

"Agile", "Java", "Big data", "SaaS" - buzz words found in practically all programmer resumes these days. At pMD, we get hundreds of resumes a week, but only a handful of positions to fill. With all these buzz words and degrees, every engineer applicant starts to blend together and seemingly appear no better or worse than the one before. How can one engineer stand out from the crowd? What do we look for in a pMD developer?

I'm pretty fortunate to be a part of pMD's development team. Ever growing and evolving, one obvious common factor stands out. Sure, everyone's sharp, likes to think outside of the box, etc... but a common trait amongst the entire team is everyone's drive to DO and own something. It's a strange trait to think about, but to me, it's what allows us to consistently create great products and meet the continuous demands of our customers. This trait I'm talking about doesn't simply refer to just having initiative. In some ways it's simpler, and in other ways, it’s multi-faceted. Whether it’s working on a complicated product enhancement, a simple interface project, or something as small as a one line bug fix, every single developer jumps on each "challenge" as soon as they step into the office - not because we have to, but because we WANT to.

These expectations translate into a candidate who enjoys talking about a particular project. Show us your direction, your focus, what you like about projects you’ve worked on, and what you want to work on in the future rather than simply discussing skills and awards. The basic coding tests will be there. To stand out from the rest, just be yourself rather than reciting your skill set. Every company will always say "we want the best of the best", but the truth of it all is, we're really just looking for someone who wants to get the job done with us, someone who is reliable, and someone who is ready to enjoy a rewarding beverage together after a long day of coding. Cheers!
