Recently Google conducted an online coding round for its step internship in Singapore.
About step internship: STEP (Student Training in Engineering Program), formerly known as Engineering Practicum, is a 10 to a 12-week internship for first and second-year undergraduate students with a passion for computer science. The internship program focuses on providing development opportunities to students from historically underrepresented groups in tech through technical training and professional development.
Experience of online coding challenge: Challenge was conducted on HackerEarth platform. The time duration was of 1 hour for solving 2 given coding questions.
- 1st question was of a higher level than the 2nd one as it also comprises of more points. 1st question was based on graph theory including the use of various algorithms.
- 2nd question was based on set and it can be solved using C++ Stl. I could only solve one of the two problems i.e. the 2nd one completely. Solving the 2nd question completely took more than 45 minutes and there was no time left for solving the other question.
