My Facebook Interview Experience
Name: Kriti Arora
Interview Venue: Bangalore
Qualification: B.Tech in Computer Science
Job Role: Software Engineer
How I got this Facebook Interview Opportunity?
Few days back, I was chatting with my friend on Facebook and I came to know that it has a career page also. I was already searching for jobs, so I immediately applied to it by uploading my latest resume on it in which I had given my valid email address.
After two weeks, when I was checking my mails I saw that one of the email in my inbox had a logo of Facebook. I opened it and I saw that this mail was from a recruiter of Facebook and he invites me for an interview session for software engineer role. All details like interview timing, venue has been written on that mail.
Preparation done before my Facebook Interview process starts:
As position is of Software Engineer role, so obviously questioning had been done from programming side. I prepared topics from C, C++ and Java language.
Books that I had read during my preparation time:
- Algorithms in C by Robert Sedgewick.
- Effective Java, by Joshua Bloch
- Introduction to Algorithms, by Cormen
- Programming Pearls, by Jon Bentley
And of course, internet is one of biggest source where you can easily take help and gather information.
Facebook Interview Day Arises:
I got up early in morning, so as to do some revision and get ready at time. I leave my home before one hour my interview session starts. I reached that place and after a few wait, one of the recruiter members welcomed me and takes me to an interview room where five persons were sitting. All were looking damn cool; I was hoping that my opinion can’t change.
As I entered the room, I wished all of them Good Morning, they replied me and told me to take my seat.
My feelings at Interview Room:
I was feeling very nervous and was quite shivering. But inside I was thinking that none of the interviewer catches me nervous as it is not a positive sign. One of female members from selection panel noticed me and asks me to relax and take a glass of water.
When Interviewer started Questioning Me:
