What most excites you about your new job?
I love that I’m working on a hyper-growth product - Google’s local shopping. I’d always imagined myself working at Google and now, here I am.
Where were you previously?
I was at Adobe, on the creative cloud enterprise team.
What was your preparation strategy?
I mostly learned through reading blogs and watching YouTube videos. I realised that I wasn’t using my time at all efficiently and I needed someone to help me better focus my preparation, so I booked some coaching sessions. I had sessions on technical concepts, which helped a ton, and product design, which gave me a good framework.
What was the hardest part of the whole interview process?
Knowing where to focus my attention during the preparation part.
What advice would you give to other candidates?
Do some mock interviews, and be yourself. I struggled with boxing my answers in frameworks I had read in books and it curbed my enthusiasm and creativity. So I started to follow my gut instead and saw a big improvement in performance.
What coaches would you recommend working with?
Bryant H. can’t be booked for the next 4 weeks. We recommend looking for another coach.
Richa P. can’t be booked for the next 4 weeks. We recommend looking for another coach.
