What most excites you about your new job?

I will be working on a banking app that hundreds of thousands of people will be using. I haven't worked on a product that this many people are using before.

Where were you previously?

Citi Bank

What was your preparation strategy?

I prepared 2-3 hours per day, over 2 months. I made a study guide with answers to common questions, worked on my portfolio and portfolio presentation, and practiced mock interviews.

What was the hardest part of the whole interview process?

Remembering specific stories under pressure and telling the stories coherently

Did any of the interview questions stand out?

"Tell me about a time where you had a specific idea for a product that made the product more successful"

Do you have any final tips for other candidates?

I think making a comprehensive study guide and story bank was key. It is very important to think about all relevant stories before the interviews.
