Really excellent article for anyone thinking about a new job and in particular interviews.
I want to highlight some very important points raised by the author:
1.PREPARE AND USE THE INTERVIEW AS AN EXPERIENCE
“Study Technical Questions – Basic Questions, Rehearse Difficult Questions, White Board, Write Down Missed Questions
- Every time while going for any interview be prepared with basic questions, research some difficult questions with the answers prior to it.
- After coming back from an interview, write down the missed questions.”
Prepare, Prepare, Prepare. This is an important event. Treat it like a really hard exam.
Also, learn from the experience. Keep a record of questions in a doc.
2.GETTING THERE ON TIME
- “Dress appropriately. Be on time. Arriving 30 minutes early is good
- Take two forms of maps: Because sometimes you will get traffic on any road; you have to know another road. Also, sometimes if you have taken a photograph into mobile and unfortunately the battery of your mobile gets discharged, in these cases, you have to carry a print out of the maps with the detailed address.”
OK, that might seem very straightforward but rushing or being late to an interview.
