Michael Crenshaw Ask Me Anything

Some were! They ran the gamut from “what are the HTTP verbs” to “what’s the difference between an interface and an abstract class.” My main difficulties were remembering some advanced SQL stuff and confusing the meanings of the virtual and abstract keywords.

Behavioral questions were tough. If they were technically related, I usually felt fine. But the interpersonal relations and personal goals questions were more difficult.

I got wildly different reactions when I said I didn’t code off the clock. Some appreciated the balanced approach, some seemed to think I could never advance without personal projects.

Overall, the interviews were fine. I’d highly recommend applying to the less desirable openings first so you get warmed up to interviewing before tackling the critical interviews.
