I’m so glad this week is over.

I just want to say good luck to everyone who interviewed!

(Brother Nguyen, this is why I wasn’t able to post.) This week was completely put me out of whack! First off, we didn’t even win ONE SINGLE game in the World Series, and not only that, we had so many chances to pull through, but we didn’t complete plays. ARGH!

MONDAY: SAB meeting in the morning, Chevron Interview and an Exam in Multimedia that lasted until midnight.
TUESDAY: Recovery, work and 2AM outing at BW3’s to watch our Astros lose.
WEDNESDAY: Bauer Career Fair and the last disappointment for our Astros.
THURSDAY: Work and JPMorganChase Info Session.
FRIDAY: USAA Interview, CS Faculty meeting, JPMorganChase Interview and later on tonight is Sohel’s birthday dinner.

Sample Interview Questions that threw me OFF:
-So if int x = 2 and int y = 3, how do you swap them with out using a temp variable or methods like the swap fuction.
-So how many stop signs are there in Houston?
-What is unicode?
-What type of UML do you know?

Sample Interview Questions that I KILLED:
-What is loyalty?
-What leadership roles have you taken?
-What are some problems you’ve encountered and how did you overcome them?
-Who is the author of Pragmatic Programmer?
-Describe to me a time when you had to convince someone to do something they were initally opposed to, but later you were able to sway their position.
-Why do you want to work for us?
-Where do you see yourself in 2-3 years?
-How long would it take for you to be comfortable to lead a $10,000,000 project?
-What is your best quality?
-How are you with handling many things at once?
-Why don’t you want to work for PepsiCo?
-What is Agile Development?
-So draw me what a doubly linked list looks like.
-Draw me what a binary tree looks like. Now what is the Big O if I wanted to search it?

  1. You think after we bonded that week through the interview process you’d let me come over and shoot pool. But NOOOO, you are an evil vietnamese COMUNIST!
