Discussion on: I failed an interview because of an algorithm

I love this post, fantastic summary of the whole interview procedure and I love your thought process. I also recently went through an interview with a large company, and as someone who has been in the same job for 10 years with no "technical interview practice" I was very worried about being asked to produce some obscure algorithm. In my case I was lucky and the problem I needed to solve was very achievable. Regardless, I think these things need to be more about process than end result. People don't always perform well under pressure like that!

Thanks you, Rose.

Indeed, time pressure and 3 people evaluating your thinking does not help much while solving a non trivial problem.

But that's life. At least it helped me to see hiring process with a different perspective! =p
