Jeepers! Just went on hackrank it seems like a top notch site to practice code and be interview ready!I’d say in fintech avg (bsc) is 15-25k.. but that assumes you actually good at what u do to be on upper end.
So every company has a different set of requirements (language, framework) which I suggest you familiarize yourself with along with ensuring you can actually code.
Wait what? Yes I said it.. if I got 1c for every developer who can’t code I’d be a billionaire.. most junior interviews have code tests which often test basic problem saving. Often students focus on other things in their final year and kinda get out of practice ie. actually go on hackrank (codility for FANG like tests) and at least be able to medium tests before going to an interview that has a whiteboard part.
Trust me.. nothing worse than having a junior software engineer bitch about salary when the value determination was based on your poor performance. Thankfully most arnt as bad as fang interviews but prep..
It's more than enough to purchase a decent first car
I Know a graduate that got offered R30 000 so he said! But I was a bit skeptical because I thought it was about steep for a graduate! But it's clear that it's quite common more especially if you're a top student of which he was!Johannesburg rates(CTC)
Graduate: R25000 - R30000.
Junior(2 Years+): R35000 - R40000.
Immediate(4 Years+): R45000 - R50000.
Senior(6 Years+): R60000+.
Starting low to get experience is bull. My first offer was R30000, I wanted experience and a real challenge I sacrifice for R18500, since then companies are bargaining max 10-20% increases after a jump. The above are market related salaries for Johannesburg. Any less then R25000 is a no go, but if they offer more then 15 days leave + perks, take it into account and reduce to R20000 min.
Standard bank offered: R28000 at the start of the year for graduates(well one graduate I know, some might get more), I will decline and not work for a bank. Bad for your career.
Shucks! You've mentioned some solid points!Be careful with rushing to the car dealership... wait a bit before getting it. If you are living in Cape Town, that 20K is gonna end up looking like nothing very quickly. After all deductions (SARS PAYE, Medical aid, pension/provident fund), you will probably have +-R14K net. This still looks good till you have to pay Cape Town rent which isn't a joke... average rental for something decent is +- 6K a month. This will leave you with an odd R7K to survive on. Wait a bit till you get your first car... don't rush it.
Vey true, m in a graduate programme in a FinTech nd they started us with R27.5k. Some of us hav Maths/Stats/Actuarial degrees and some have IT qualificationsPretty much the norm in fintech. It can be anything from R15k - R30k, maybe even more.
Obviously depends on whether you have honours, your marks, type of qualification etc. Degrees like Engineering and Comp Science in particular will get you a good start...
Hey There please can I ask you a few questions maybe we can talk via email or even whatsApp if you don't mind? I want to ask questions about how to get into a graduate program and also how do I increase my chances of getting into a graduate program...a have more questions it maybe here is not the best place to talk in depthVey true, m in a graduate programme in a FinTech nd they started us with R27.5k.

Most of these GDP programs are advertised at your university. The companies even come on compass to recruit.Hey There please can I ask you a few questions maybe we can talk via email or even whatsApp if you don't mind?

Not really, They are interested in ur analytical skills or ability to solve problems. but of course, as a rule of thumb u need some personal developmet skills or soft skills. that is where "communication skills" come in.
