At some point they’ll stop interviewing be so I can stop brushing up on things.
Also, this text is pre-CSS3, pre-HTML5. Have to go through those a bit later and brush up on the jQuery API.
It is a front-end development interview, after all.
Anybody have ideas of things I should prepare for?
Omigod. This interview prep resource email is a bit frightening.
I don’t want to take second year algorithms over again.
So, looks like I may spend a week at home after I get back from tomorrow’s New York trip before I’m hopping on a plane to go back.
For an interview. Although, the week of the 20th is only a tentative suggestion at the moment.
I’m not sure I did the wise thing
Speaking to the recruiter from G*****, it came up what my location preferences would be.
The way she spoke, it seemed like if I were to interview in MV, that it would lead, more likely, to a job in MV. She indicated that I could switch the focus to the New York office in Chelsea before we go futher. So, I chose that. Now she’s going to try to arrange a connection with a recruiter in NYC.
I hope I haven’t closed a door.
I don’t feel as good about that G***** phone interview
I was a bit more nervous this time, and I tend to speak too much when I am.
I did decently on a live-coding question, but I was asked to design a small web application system on the fly and about how to improve it for large server loads. I got a big hand-wavy on distributed databases and felt like my answer came out sounding more novice than I’d like.
