MongoDB Best Practices: How to ACE a Tech Interview

Hi all :wave:

Yulia Genkina, curriculum engineer at MongoDB, gave a fantastic talk to CUNY Tech Prep students on how to ace a technical interview.

This talk can be of great help if you’re currently looking for a job or preparing yourself for upcoming technical interviews. You can find the video here.

In this video, you’ll hear about:

  • The key success components for a technical interview
  • How to prepare for an interview: what should you research? What questions for the company and what information about yourself should you prepare? Is there anything that needs rehearsing?
  • How to find out what you are looking for when interviewing for jobs in the tech industry.
  • Solving a coding problem. We uncover some common mistakes that can result in being stuck during the interview. We work together to get unstuck and talk about how to practice that skill for future interviews.

You can find the slides here.

Let us know what you think and good luck with your interview(s)!
