My first tech interview was for an internship as a QA Tester. He chose a language that was on my resume and asked me to code a loop that accomplishes several things. Pretty simple. 🙄🤔 But THEN… he hands me a laptop and asks me to write the same exact program in a language that WASN’T on my resume! 🤯
He wanted to see my thought process and how much I was able to R E S E A R C H before getting my code to work!
I’ll always remember this interview because I thought it was a fun challenge. I also thought it was a very REALISTIC way to interview a student.
I got the internship out of several qualifying applicants and it was most certainly a stepping stone to where I am today…
