I don't hire the algorithm wizard. I hire the person with insight and objectivity. I can teach algorithms.
I've never had algo grilling during interviews, and I wouldn't even accept this. Sure, asking when to use which algos, that's relevant, but rote learning just for interviews? No thanks.
KalmyK4851yBro, I have the same problem right now, not even easy are being solved by me too ;) you are not alone. We should create discord for prepping together!
Oh and even in my first job, I didn't have such questions. The company was looking for someone to take over a considerable codebase in assembly but didn't want to pay senior level. My final thesis involved an assembly project, and as beginner, I wasn't demanding too much money, so we came to an easy agreement.
One thing that many people don't do during interviews, and I have seen this as the manager of my department is: they don't work on their social skills at all. I am very much interested in the problem solver that has a disposition to work well with others, good communication skills, an overall fun attitude that will not crash when shit hits the fan.
Making the interview(technical one that is) all about algorithms always seemed meh to me, since even the most advanced developers will google shit when they are writing whatever, plus, web development ain't rocket science.
@pythonInRelay what leetcode meme? i must have missed that
Valid. The study is just part of this game.
blol671yAlso, gotta love those lateral thinking questions.
- How many streets are in x city?
- What information do I have?
- Then the answer is 0. (You s***face!)
