Interviewing for a new job can be a stressful proposition. It is hard to know what to expect or how to prepare for it. Each company evaluates its candidates differently. Luckily, some upfront investment and preparation can really go a long way in helping you distinguish yourself from the rest of the candidates. In this seminar led by an engineering leader at AWS Elemental (https://www.elemental.com/), we will cover some common interviewing practices for technical interviews and what you may be able to do to get ready. We plan to cover many beneficial topics: -- Morning preparation, attire, mindset -- Preparation for the non-technical parts -- How to study for the coding interview -- How to execute the coding test
Due to the level of interaction required, attendance will be capped at 50.
Agenda: 5:00 p.m. - Doors open 5:15 p.m. - Introduction 5:30 p.m. - Session begins 6:30 p.m. - Session ends
