Your boss wants you to find out the minimum floor from which, when you throw out a game console it will break, you have a building with 100 floors. You have two game consoles to try and find out.

5 Answers

You throw a console from the second floor, it will break - thats your answer.

- Take first console, put in progressive hydraulic press, measure necessary force to break. - Take second console, put in wind tunnel, measure coefficient of drag. - Use these values to calculate necessary height of drop to cause sufficient impact force to break console, given acceptable variance. The answer is the lowest floor with a floor height greater than this value. Less

There's a lot of elements to typically cover in these questions, clarifications, scoping, making sure you're answering the actual question the interviewer is looking for you to answer, etc. Could be worth doing a mock interview with one of the Prepfully Electronic Arts Technical Artist experts... they've worked in the role so they clearly know how to get through the interview.

what i would do is think positively from the beginning and communicate with that person and try to get the job done as best as possible with them. I would not let my opinion on someone get in the way of a task Less

Can you bring a model and do work on the interview?

4 Answers

yes I can bring a model if you need me to have one and show my skills.

Almost every makeup brand will ask you to bring a model most even before meeting you because to them the most important thing is artistry and to speed up the application process they may want to see your artistry before seeing if they want to follow up with the interview. Less

Not before you have even met me.
