    Interview

    So far I have received a phone call. It was fairly simple and she was friendly. I was too nervous and kind of hesitated. I was expecting behavioural questions and I had a sheet of notes in front of me. Didn't get to use it at all. There were a few other ones than stated below, but nothing behavioural, just 'about me' questions. Update: I got an face to face interview with two other people. They were very friendly and great. I was really scared waiting for them to come, but after meeting them made me relax naturally, maybe because they were not old? Here are most of the questions they asked: - Tell me more about yourself - If you have a bug and the developer can't fix it, what will you do? - If you have 10 things to finish by the end of the day and you cannot finish it, what will you do? - What kind of monitor do I have? - What kind of gfx card do I have? - What kind of games do I play? - What is the resolution for 1080p? (I actually messed this up) - Explain AMD's edge removal technology (when dual monitors are together) - What are the modes you can do when you use multiple monitors? (looked like they were asking for the modes from catalyst, not from windows) - You say you're tech savvy, what websites do you follow? - What experience you have with OS and what have you used? - Whats youre idea of a quality product? If we have 8million lines of code, is that quality? - What was the hardest programming thing you did? - What experience in building computers you have? - What type of display connectors are there (vga, dvi ... )? - What is the difference between DVI and HDMI? There was only 2-3 behavioural questions, the conversation steered more to my experience at previous job. They said if I get the job, i'll hear from them in two weeks. There were a few other ones. I felt like I underrepresented myself and screwed up the simplest technical questions. Anyhow, what a learning experience.
