Description

Job interviews can be very difficult and intimidating. When you need a job, it is important to have good job interviewing skills and know what to expect. The only problem is, it is very difficult to get experience with job interviews, because we don't do them that often. This course is designed to make you feel much more prepared for a developer job interview by going over the process and talking about many of the types of questions you are likely to encounter. In this course we'll go over the basics of a job interview and talk about specifically what employers are looking for and how you can improve your resume. I'll teach you some tricks that increase the chances of you getting an interview greatly. We'll also go over one of the most difficult and scary parts of a developer job interview, solving a coding question on the spot. I'll walk you through my own personal technique for solving these types of problem and take you step by step through an example, so that you can gain the skills and experience that will help you feel comfortable to tackle these kinds of problems on your own. Our journey will then takes us through some typical interview questions to help you understand what types of thing you should know and prepare for and the best way to answer these types of questions. Then we'll go through a blazing fast boot camp for computer science questions about data structures, algorithms, bit manipulation, and concurrency... All the fun stuff you forgot about from college. And finally we'll wrap up by talking about how you can get experience if you don't have any, and what kind of experience is valuable. If you are looking for a job currently or just want to brush up on your skills to be prepared, this course might be just for you.
