Okay Anon. It's interview time once again. Lay some advice or other shit on me. What should I FOR SURE know?

Background: I aced the phone screen and they're flying me a few states away, giving me a rental car, putting me up in a hotel, and then I have 7 interview sessions.. Yeah, kind nervous.

not naming names.

If you don't know enough to pass an interview, you aren't going to learn it in a day.
>>
>>52269165
I do know enough. I just need to have some guidance as to what to expect.
>>
What products/services does the company provide? Can you think how C++ is used in context with those products
I guess this is more of a brag than actual advice seeking thread. Gratz OP
>>
>>52269211
the contract out to a non-specific three letter government org.

Yeah, i'm just nervous as to what the fuck they're going to be asking me after 4-5 one hour conversations. Sounds fucking exhausting.

And it's really not a brag type thread. I just want to know what I should hammer down today that'll definitely come up.
>>
>>52269141
>7 interviews
Jesus fucking christ I hate tech companies these days...
>>
>>52269243
If you transfer to Microsoft, its 12+ rounds atleast. Old friend did 15 for senior tech dev/team leader.
If you are promoted within microsoft, its like 5-7 maximum.
>>
>>52269295
What more can they ask you after like 3? Honestly. Do they want to make sure you never pass out from exhaustion?
>>
>>52269141
Fuck off to bussiness retard.

I could program around you, talk my ass off, and communicate with people while having good programming abilities that sounds better then yours.

>Don't go for this job
>Lean to communicate and not just code (Program)

Cunts
>>
>let's talk a bit about wearing women's clothing while programming
>>
>>52269141
I hope you get cancer.

For some reason you think we need to know about your failure to learn communication skills.

What the actual fuck.
>>
Make sure to swallow all of it.
>>
>>52269141
And?

What the fuck do you want me to say?
Your programming skills is all you need and that you can't simply fuck up if you program the day not too?

Fuck off and grow some confidence you retard.
>>
>all these jealous neets in this thread
>>
>>52269141
I hope you don't get any jobs you go for.

holy shit i'm just asking for advice because i'm nervous for an interview!

>>52269425
What do you think they'll be asking me.
>>
>>52269437
>Assuming I am a NEET.
How fucking dare you you filthy pleb.

First off you disrespectful cunt, not sure about others but I am employed as a software engineer. I make programming code shorter while maintaining programming integrity. I get a weekly paycheck and work in australia.

I get paid well and live well. I bet you earn million a year and think that being paid each week is pleb quality.

>I am not the one assuming cunts are unemployed here.

>>52269342
In my experience it's just more coding questions, and one of which (usually the one during lunch time) is a behavioural interview.

Yeah i'm hammering down on inheritence heirarchy, polymorphism, virtual classes / methods, templates, etc, maaaybe a bit of smart pointers and destructors (which I don't really know how to use yet).

Then i'll work on some data structure type stuff.

I 've had a phone + two technical interviews recently for a position of Junior SE. I was nervious af desu senpai.

The first one was just about some projects i did, they wanted to know if i really know wtf is going on or if i lied in my CV. Software design, UML, design patterns, stuff like that.

The second one was full blown 4.5h technical interview where they go as deep as they can on every topic (prog. lang. proficiency, DB, algorithms, front end, automated testing, OOP, a short case study, team fit).

They want to hire you. They want to see how much you do know and set your salary/position/project accordingly. Try to relax and just go with the flow. Try to answer most of the questions, even if you are not sure about it - they want to see how you think and whats your thought process.

Be honest and show them that you are motivated and wanna learn new stuff. Thats all they expect from an Intern/Junior.

Good luck anon.

>>52271147
How can you not know about destructors if you know c++?
>>
>>52271229
I know about destructors but some brush up on when exactly smart ones expire is where i'm going to look into.

>>52271193
thanks m8. I've done some database stuff already but i'll be sure I remember all the correct syntax before I get there. Care to share any difficult questions that you had to think about for a while (like design Q's for example.. they're hard to find online).
>>
>>52269165
Only true to an extent.

I learned AngularJS in a day after lying about having mastery of it for the sake of getting interviews, and landed a senior position. Admittedly, it was regurgitating knowledge and C++ is infinitely more complex, but don't underestimate Parkinson's law.
>>
>>52271315
The thing is, every topic starts slow and its easy but eventually you hit a wall. Thats the point. Once that happens, they changed the question and gave me a second chance, but if i still could not get it - next topic.
Basically every topic had that one "hard" question and I cant really remember what it was (and its totally individual anyways).

About the design - I dunno, thats just something I ve learned during my studies and individual projects. They gave me a couple of A4 sheets of paper with req. for a small game. They left the room and gave me 10 minutes to come up with the class diagram. After that I had to defend my design and give reasoning for my choices (why the XYZ inheretance, why would you use this design pattern, etc.)

Its late to read about patterns and stuff, but atleast look into SOLID, and make sure you are profitient with c++ (know all the keywords for example, how to override an operator, templating, etc.).

Worst case scenario - you wont get the job but you ll know how the interview works and what are your weakest points. You ll get the next one.
>>
>>52271522
thanks m8. The more topics I can hammer today on my flight(s) and tonight when I get to my hotel the better I'll feel about walking in there.
