Technical interview : Questions I have been asked-3

 Published On

In the previous article, of the series on technical interview questions, I shared the real interview questions I have been asked for middle-sized company that commercialize HR solutions. I have gone through my mails and found a memo to myself for a series of interviews I had for job vacancy in a small arbitrage company.

It was the best technical interview I had so far. Unfortunately, I failed in the last interview (-I had 3 technical interview sessions with this company-). This is a good example of interview where you learn a lot. Fellow I had interview with has a very solid background and the way he prepared the interview aimed to screen the candidate on different aspects using direct knowledge questions, discussions about a large and vague topics, puzzles etc.
