What is a Technical Interview?

Technical interviews are a part of the hiring process for technical professionals: it’s a highly focused and rigorous process that assesses your technical skills, personality, and problem-solving abilities. In the same vein as “show, don’t tell,” you need to demonstrate your skills to the interviewer, rather than just stating them. The purpose of a technical interview isn’t to trick you with riddles, brainteasers, or impossible questions, but rather to see how you tackle real-world problems, such as those you may encounter once you get hired. For the majority of us, technical interviews are a nightmare come true (with 3-4 interview rounds, remote coding challenges, and even full-day onsite interviews). Even though they are intimidating, it is much easier when you know what to expect and have invested time into interview preparation.

Technical Interviews are notoriously unpredictable. As an applicant, you are likely to encounter some of the standard technical interview questions from different categories (think of behavioral questions, questions regarding education, situation-based questions, questions about one’s technical knowledge, experience, certifications, knowledge of project management systems, etc.). Here are a few:

  1. Which programming languages do you use regularly in your work?

  2. Do you have any technical certifications that make you qualified for this job?

  3. Can you explain the most rewarding project you have worked on so far? Can you elaborate on your part in it?

  4. What steps do you take to ensure accurate estimates for a project?

  5. Are you familiar with two-tier architecture? Explain its elements and uses.

How to Prepare for a Technical Interview?

Listed below are a few tips for interviewing for technical positions:

  • An important step is to review the job description to determine what you need to study. This may involve learning data structures, coding in a specific language, or using business intelligence tools.

  • Explain your approach to solving problems and logical reasoning. This points out your problem-solving and critical thinking abilities to a hiring manager.

  • Do not hesitate to ask for more information if you do not understand the question. In case you do not know the answer to a question, tell the interviewer or ask probing questions to learn more. This may aid you in finding the right answer.

  • Attempt coding assignments and brain teasers to improve your programming skills.

Be thoughtful and honest in your response. Describe the skills you have that are most relevant to the position. Be prepared to back up your response with an example. You can provide examples of how your strengths have worked for you in the past and discuss the ways the skills could benefit you in the position you are interviewing for.
Be honest, but be cautious of stating that your weakness is what they are looking for an employee… Think about the job duties described in the job postings and try not to point out weaknesses that would be a major obstacle should you be hired. It is also wise to discuss how you are working on the weakness. Do not respond with “I can’t really think of anything”.
Be sure to point out qualities/skills/attributes that you possess that may set you apart from other candidates. Do you have certifications that others may not? Demonstrate confidence without sounding conceited. Illustrate your worth as an employee by talking about what past and present supervisors would say about you. Make sure you highlight your uniqueness to show you would be the best candidate for the position.

What are some of the lessons you learned from this person and how could you incorporate that into your life.
You do not want to give a negative view of your accountability. Your answer should not indicate that you have poor time management skills or poor work ethic. Discuss your willingness to adjust a deadline if you think it will add to the overall quality of the project. What could happen if you had not adjusted the deadline. What steps did you take to extend the deadline?
This is one question you would not answer specifically. If you would like to see yourself in management, it is fine to say so, but you may not want to list a specific title you would like to hold. Be realistic. Consider the company you are interviewing with, their opportunities for advancement and how that will fit into your five year plan.
Give two or three reasons why you are looking for a new position. Regardless of your feelings towards your supervisor and co-workers, refrain from talking negatively about them.

This question will give the interviewer a sense of your personality and how it relates to the prospective supervisor. How you discuss your past supervisors will give insight to the way you work and any potential problems that may arise. AVOID being negative! Be honest, but try to put a positive spin on it. If you didn’t get along well discuss what you learned about yourself, etc.
What do you need to have a positive work environment, or things that could have been better at a previous environment? Discuss how it would be ineffective without those things. You could consider the importance of: communication, feedback, ability to infuse a personal touch on projects, etc. Would having these items make the work place more or less effective?
If you are known for taking the initiative be sure to provide a good example of what you did and why it was taking initiative. If you have not been known to take initiative in the workplace, provide an example of why.
Be sure to consider the position you are interviewing for. If you prefer consistency, will this job provide that? If you prefer dynamic constantly changing, will this position provide that?
You may consider responding that constructive criticism allows you to grow as a professional.
This is your opportunity to discuss experiences that you may have omitted from your resume to keep it at one page. Be sure the information you provide is relevant and not found in your resume. You want to give them something new. If you have won awards that weren’t noted, if you are currently working on a certificate, but didn’t include it on the resume because it is not finished… now is the time to bring those things up.
Talk about a time when you persevered to accomplish a goal. Choose something that that will reflect an interest in developing new skills, demonstrates your ability to gather resources and manage stressful situations. Discuss the results you obtained.
The interviewer is attempting to gain information to see if you have a tendency to crack under pressure. Be sure you show that you can manage high-pressure situations. Think of ways you manage your stress throughout the day.

Be sure to answer the question, do not just list the same skills that are displayed on your resume.
Be honest, but also appear flexible. Consider the values and mission of the company… is teamwork something they strive for? If you are best at completing tasks alone, you can honestly say that, but also state that you can work in a group setting, and if you are better working in a group, that is okay, but be sure to mention you can also complete tasks individually. Be sure that you consider the typical work day in this position and if you would normally be working alone or in a group…
