one of them accidentally let's it out that he was looking for my social media presence and couldn't find any and that its a huge red flag
Of course he didn't follow up with even a rejection email.

It strongly indicates that you're a weird guy with no friends and that you're probably socially awkward.

not having social media presence is a major red flag in 2019. stalking social media is part of the hiring process. it catalogs your entire life in a way that's nearly impossible to fake.

If you have references, made decent college thesis or noteworthy project, or got active git repo, I don't give two fucks if you got facebook or whatever.
But if you have none of those, I will be looking into social media as the next step, yes.
Oh and references don't need to be previous employers, volunteering or freelance is fine too.

First impression matters a lot. Your CV should contain enough information to convince the recruiter you would be good fit for the job, but not feel like you're filling. Always custom-tailor, don't make "universal" lists of everything you can think that stretches for over 2 pages.

Haha, this too. There's occasionally a peculiar candidate like that, it's amusing but not getting anybody hired.

Apply for a defense contractor, OP.
No social media is a HUUUUUGE plus to them. They have serious issues, especially with younger candidates, posting shit on Facebook that they shouldn't.

FBI, CIA, NSA, the big contractors like BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, Booz Allen, etc. all tell interns "don't post where you work on social media."
The number of kids that lose these internship opportunities to brag on social media is absurd.

Luis Ward
Luis Ward

It never even begin
But how do you produce value. I hear all this talk about code monkies being no skill labor and how easy it is to use libraries but nobody has told me how these people create revenue.

Take the Jow Forums programming roll chart for example. Green is something you can do within first weeks or a month. Yellow takes takes longer but one can create simple paint, encryption or pathfinding algos with ease after looking up the subject. Red is significally harder than yellow but not impossible.

Now, Iv seen people say code monkies cant solve the red ones so how are they able to generate any value? How do they contribute?

It'd be fine for an IT gremlin you can lock away in a broom closet but not for a software dev who actually needs to work with others. Not having Facebook means you're either a "muh botnet" autist who's going to sperg out at every non-FOSS piece of software we use, or a plain old anti social autist who's not going to communicate well with others and who's going to want to do everything his way instead of cooperating. Basically it's not worth the risk when you have 50 other CVs on the pile

Josiah Morris
Josiah Morris

That's the difference between being a code monkey and being a software engineer. A code monkey looks at programming like something he toils at in the workplace and goes home to, well, not toil. A software engineer usually has personal projects they work on for fun. If you just learned how to program to make money of course you're gonna hate it. If you got a programming job because you were actually interested in programming then you'll probably not work on as many personal projects but you'll still work on something, for yourself.

Anthony Jones
Anthony Jones

Code monkies contribute because there's a sweet spot where you need to know how to program enough to hack your way through easier problems in as few languages as possible, but nobody is expecting you to do red-tier problems, so software engineers hand off the boring easy monotonous shit to the code monkies so you don't waste your time when you can be working on more complex parts that code monkies can't do.
There's nothing wrong with being a code monkey, code monkies are crucial to software development, but that's just what they're called.

Ryan Peterson
Ryan Peterson

I enjoy my job, but nobody enjoys having to work for someone else who isn't always thinking exactly what you're thinking, 24/7. That is, of course, why I do personal projects (which use things I use at work) because I enjoy what I do for work, but I don't enjoy having to work for someone else, but in some cases not having anyone to work for is even worse. I remember someone online saying something to the effect of, you don't usually quit your job, you quit your boss.
