It’s a good economy and a strong tech market, which means that recent graduates with a computer-science degree have a pretty solid shot at landing a job with either a startup or an established firm. But that’s not to say the hunt will be easy, thanks to the sheer number of people entering the workforce at the moment.
What’s the best way to stand out from all those fellow applicants?

That will provide potential employers with a quick and easy way of seeing what you’re capable of doing.
