Chapter 16: Conclusion


At this point you should be feeling much more comfortable with programming interviews and have a good idea of what to expect when you apply for your next (or first!) job. Being prepared is half the battle, and will give you an edge over the candidates who are nervous and uncomfortable with the technical interview process.

Don’t stop preparing once you put down this book. Here are some suggestions for what to do next:

  • Keep your brain nimble - Puzzles are always good ways to train your mind to think outside the box.

  • Read about programming - Try to stay current with the latest ideas and trends in computing.

  • Visit technical interview sites - A Web search with the phrase “technical interview questions” will list a number of sites with questions similar to those found in this book. (Answers aren’t usually provided, but even if they are it’s better to work through the problems yourself.)

Finally, don’t stop learning when you get that job. Keep developing your problem-solving skills; they can help at every stage of your career.
