re: DISCUSS: Technical Interview Horror Stories VIEW POST


More of a funny-nightmarish story: I spent the night before the interview making sure that the camera and microphone on my laptop worked and that I knew how to use them. This was to be my first ever interview and the first time in a long time that I used my (very crappy) computer fir a video call.

Of course the next day when I got the call, nothing was working. I couldn't share my screen with the interviewer. He was really understanding and suggested a few options, but nothing worked.

In the end I had do do the coding assignment he gave me with one hand while filming my screen with my phone with my other hand.

I was a bit surprised when they told me they wanted to proceed with the interview process. I have to give credit to the interviewer for making me feel at ease (also, I kinda knew him because we practice the same sport, which definitely helped me stay calm).
