    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yahoo (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    There were two back-to-back face-to-face on-campus interviews. Got the interview at career fair, and was interviewed the next day.An informal offer was given after two weeks. Some people had interviews after with hiring managers, but I didn't.

    Interview Questions

    • 1st interview: asked to describe a bug and how I resolved it in one of my projects. Then asked to Serialize a binary search tree, i.e. give a string representation of a BST. At the end there was time for questions. 2nd Interview: Casual. Asked about some code that I had on GitHub. Asked about my background in CS. Anytime I mentioned something, e.g. regex or relational databases, he would ask for a simple example confirming I actually knew it.   Answer Question
