Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Yahoo.

Interview Details – The good thing is they do not have general interview as most big companies do. Each team has its own requirements and ask different questions.

Interview Question – When the interviewer heard my background, he immediately said I was not a good fit for this position. Then why they didn't do a filtering of my resume. Waste of time.   Answer Question
