Round 2 – Tech Round 1 – A total of 36 students were shortlisted based on the performance of the coding test.
- Interviews happened on zoom using the feature of the breakout room.
- Duration – 30-35 minutes.
- The interviewer asked me which project I would like to discuss from my resume and then we discussed the tech stack and project implementation in brief following up with some cross-questioning.
- Then we moved on to the coding question – HackerRank code pair link was provided.
I got matrix pattern printing question
I wrote the code, but it gave a compile-time error as soon as I hit the run button.
- The interviewer noticed this and he said, “Oh, compile-time error!”
- I did a typo in the printing statement which lead to a compile-time error.
This was when I felt disappointed and did not get a Tech round 2 interview call.
Points to remember :
- Check your code twice /thrice before running it in interviews.
- Do not get compile-time errors in interviews – It produces a bad impression.
