Say you hate China and Pakistan. Love cricket. And curry! Don’t forget to mention how much you hate eating beef!

All good, get some curry and watch some Arnab taking on Pakistan by himself!

To start with, focus on technicals rather race

Um...what is your concern?

This is obviously a valid question as it is a well known fact that all Indian interviewers are the same 🤡

Tell him you think the Kashmir issue could be easily resolved by just giving it to Pakistan.

OP, I hear you. The FOB Indian interviewers consider interview as interrogation. But as they spend more time in the country, they transform to conduct interview as a conversation rather than interrogation.

One way to tackle the interrogation style interview is to be more technical when you answer. But again, you deserve respect and if you feel the interviewer is getting too arrogant and personal with technical questions, politely tell them that and also follow up with the recruiter.

I agree indian interviewers go into more technical or definition wise American one will go scenario based , so make sure you have all definitions , technical concept clear or more specific as per books

Be prepared and don’t ask stupid questions. That goes for interviewers of all races

Are you assuming us Indians would be unimpressed by your technical abilities? If so, I’m sure a lot of races would be too. Get to it!

Detail the things you’ve done, not what you know. Show your work for the answers you arrive at.

what type of indian? it is very different depending on whether he is north or south

Absolutely not. All Indian born middle aged men who have immigrated to the US think they are smarter than everyone else.

Definitely do not call him Pakistani

Make sure you master the Indian nods

But last weekend, I didn’t bring a gift to my friend’s kid’s 8th birthday party. Not cause I didn’t want to, but just ran out of time and honestly I don’t know what 8year olds are in to and I’ll just give the parents a gift cards later (cont)

I miss depth. We are moving to Figma, it’s great, but watching some sessions at Adobe Max I was feeling nostalgic for deeper work like one might do with Illustrator. The tools are for different purposes I know, but presently we are doing such slap dash work, and everyone and their mother is ‘helping’ with the design. The other day a developer had a random idea, it wasn’t bad, and I just didn’t care, so I said’sure’ do that.
