Information Retrieval Expert Interview

Information Retrieval Expert
Berlin (Germany)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Nokia in April 2012.

Interview Details – 3 interviews: personal technical, personal search skills, human skills.

The process felt slow and chaotic.

In general, I find asking candidates questions about programming and expecting to know everything by heart is not very inspiring, and can not judge talent, unless it is about dead end programming jobs. The job description did not fit the interview content.

Interview Question – Level 2 cache operations influenced by java collections.   View Answer
