      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      I finished final round interview. Should I send a thank you letter to everyone or only to people where I have something interesting to add on. I interviewed with the hiring manager twice already and sent thank you emails. He never responds, should I even bother to send him one more since we talked again in the final round? HR said I wouldn’t hear back until late next week earliest. It sounds like they still have to wrap up final rounds with other people. I don’t want them to forget me.


      Urban Health Plan

      I interviewed for a position virtually and in person both interviews went well. I sent my Thank you email and never heard back from the department. They were interested in me and asked me to reach back out to them, it’s surprising they never responded to me.


      Data Engineer

      Got a possible interview coming up with Pepsico as a data engineer in the DFW, TX area. It's more towards an entry-beginner type of role. Anyone know what kind of questions I should be expecting in the technical part of the interview?
