Event description

Description

Interviewing for a new job can be a stressful proposition. It is hard to know what to expect and even harder 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 guided by an engineering leader at Elemental, 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

The technical parts covered by this training are targeted towards Software Development (SDE) roles, but Software Management (SDM) and Technical Program Manager (TPM) candidates may also find it beneficial. This is primarily a training event, note that recruiting managers and recruiters may not be present. If you wish to attend a recruiting/networking event, please keep an eye on future events.

Due to the level of interaction required, attendance will be capped at 60. Never fear: we will be organizing this same event bi-monthly because we want everyone to have access to this session!
