Interview Preparation 2019 (Frequently Asked Questions to Programmer)

I was once asked by my junior what is more important – getting good marks in college exams or interview preparation just from the beginning of college. This question is very difficult, my answer to him was – devote your time on both. Actually, you can equate interviews with competitive exams. For the preparation of competitive exams, you cannot leave behind your school or college studies. So, you have to devote equal time to both of them.

Being a programmer myself, I faced many interviews. That’s why I decided why not share my experience with all the upcoming programmers. I wrote many posts on interviews if until now, you have not read my previous posts. I recommend you to read them for interview preparation 2019. Read my previous posts on this topic>

Interview preparation

Tell Me Something About Yourself.

This is usually the first question asked whenever you face any interview. Now, how to answer this question??? Answer this question very carefully, never go into telling so many personal details. Try to answer in a way to explain more about your skills and previous job experience. In today’s time, no one is interested in your personal details where you were born, your likes and dislikes, so try not to pick these points up.

Correct Answer for Interview preparation for this question is (if you are a software engineer) – “I did software engineering from University (your university name). I started my career as a web developer with a well-reputed company (company name) where I worked on various projects. I have a good experience while working in a team. Currently, I’m working there as a software engineer.” If you’re a fresher try to tell about your skills, projects you made in your college or in industrial training.

Why do you Plan to Leave your Current Job? 

Don’t ever tarnish the image of your current company or previous company (if you already left the job) in front of your interviewer. There can be several reasons you want to leave the job – severe work pressure, no salary hikes,…, etc. But, it is better to keep this truth within you. Here, the correct answer you can give is – “I want to switch my job because I am looking forward to new challenges and tasks.” or Say “For better opportunities, I want to switch my job.” With this type of answer, you can escape from this question in a very decent and intelligent way.

Tell Me About your Educational Qualification.

This is another frequently asked question by the interviewer. The correct way to answer this question is – “I did software engineering (or any trade), my major subjects were (tell your favorite subjects) – Data structure, AI, Programming etc. I acquire skills in (tell about your skills) web development technologies.”

What are your Expectations?

Here the interviewer wants to know – how much salary you expect from the company. You must be aware of the market rates according to your skills and experience. Never quote too much high price and not too low. If you can find out what the company is paying to others like you, then this will be good for you. Every industry sets its own range of salaries, so read about the company and its salary structure first before going for interviews.

What are your Career Goals? 

I have a goal to be a good software engineer, learn new technologies, enhance my skills, and become a productive employee for the company. Likewise, you can tell about your own career goals. Speak-up what you think about your career goals. Try to also focus on the company’s growth and how you can increase its growth.

 

What are the Key Projects you Worked on? 

Here, you have to tell him some projects that you did in your career with a little bit details not too much, only the intro of the projects and its purpose.

Why should we hire you over the other Job Applicants? 

I think the most difficult question is this why? Here, you have to prove yourself.  Here, you have to tell him about your strong skills and key areas where you are the best from other candidates. In short, you have to impress the interviewer by showing your inner confidence.

How well do you deal with stress and Work pressure? 

Here, the interviewer wants to know if you’re ready to handle the work-load you’re given or you run away with the pressure. You have to tell him how you deal with a stress and work-pressure, it a kind of very personal question. Everyone has their own way to deal with a stress and work pressure. Some people deal with a stress by talking to others, talking with a counselor or listening to music, taking a tea break,.., etc. You have to tell your own ways to deal with stress and work pressure.

Tell me something that’s a challenge for you? 

Don’t show the interviewer your weakness by telling him that this is the thing which is a challenge for you. Show him that you are confident enough to handle all the challenges given by the company. However, project deadline and new task are a challenge for everyone you have to tell yours.

How do you resolve issues in a team?

Here, the interviewer wants to know your qualities to work as a team member or team leader. The correct way to answer this is – “I regularly discuss with my team members what problems they are facing in work. By discussing with each other, we learn a lot from each other. This way, we can resolve any issue that comes up.”

Programming Questions for Interview Preparation

Programming questions are usually asked just after personal questions. By asking programming questions, the interviewer grasps how much you know your subjects and of course programming. Moreover, he notices you how fast you answer a question and the way you answer a question. I suggest you go through these questions for interview preparation. Also, read my previous posts and upcoming posts for knowing more about interview preparation on several topics about different programming languages.

What is a Class?

A class is a real word entity which has variables and methods/behavior it’s a template/blueprint that describes the behavior/state. We can create an object of the class, for example –

Class Student 

{

     String name;
      int age
      int marks;

      Void student_Marks()

       {

        }

       Void sudent_name()

       {

        }

}

What is the Constructor of a Class?

When we create a class with constructor it will be called. We create a new object for this class, and we keep the same name for both class and constructor. For example –

Class Student 

{

String name;
int age
int marks;

// This is a constructor

public student(int age)

 {

  this.age=age

 }

}


How to Access Instance Variables and Methods?

public class student

{
int studentAge;
public student(String name)

{
// This constructor has one parameter, name.
System.out.println("Name chosen is :" + name );
}
public void setAge( int age )

{
studentAge = age;
}
public int getAge( )

{
System.out.println("student's age is :" + studentAge );
return studentAge;
}

public static void main(String []args)

{
/* Object creation */

student abc = new student( "jon" );

/* Call class method to set student's age */

abc.setAge( 2 );

/* Call another class method to get student's age */

abc.getAge( );

/* You can access instance variable as follows as well */

System.out.println("Variable Value :" + abc.studentAge );

}
}

What is Inheritance?

The ability of a class to derive characteristics from another class is inheritance. Like when a child class derives characteristics from his parent class is inheritance.

class Parent
{
string name;
};

class child extends Parent
{
int age;
};

What is Encapsulation?

When we want to hide data from outside of the class, we need “Encapsulation”. It hides the implementation details from outside of the class when a data members are private. It means it is an Encapsulation. Encapsulation, another name is data hiding.

class Encapsulation

{
private String Name;

public String getName()

{
return Name;
}
public void setName(String newValue)

{
Name = newValue;
}

public class EncapsTest

{
public static void main(String args[])

{
Encapsulation Ab = new Encapsulation();
ab.setName("walt");
System.out.println(" Name: " + obj.getName());

}

What is Polymorphism in OOP?

Polymorphism is a feature of the object-oriented programming that allows us to create a single action in a different way, for example, consider human that has a method eat();

public class human

{
public void eat()

{
System.out.println("eating");
}
}
public class student extends human

{

public void eat()

{
System.out.println("student eating");
}
}
