Interview

I recently participated in a brief phone screening with a representative from IBM. The purpose of the call was to assess my suitability for the position of software engineer. The interviewer asked me about my educational background, work experience, and technical skills. I answered the questions confidently and provided examples of my projects and achievements. The call lasted for about 15 minutes and ended with the interviewer thanking me for my time and informing me that I would hear back from them soon.

Interview Questions
  • The interview with the IBM representative was challenging but interesting. He asked me several questions on hashing, such as how to implement a hashmap in Java, what are the advantages and disadvantages of different hashing methods, and how to handle collisions. He also tested my knowledge of the syntax for writing a hashmap, and asked me to write some code snippets to demonstrate it. He was very thorough and wanted to know the time complexity for simple algorithms like searching, inserting and deleting elements from a hashmap. I tried my best to answer his questions and explain my reasoning.
