Usually they reach out to potential candidates.

It's really not considered good form and might be a turnoff, if you're even able to. I think they can block outside messages? It's probably a turnoff either way.

Hey, it totally depends on the situation. If that person puts up a recruitment post and you text, it's okay. But in the other case, the company's work culture matters. Like Amazon HR's are friendly so you can text anybody but IBM HR's are not so helpful outside work network, so no luck there. It all depends on the situation.

For me it was the other way round. A recruiter reached out and that's how I got my job at Amazon

I tried reaching but they told, we will get back to you and never comes back...lol

Often in the interview, interviewer asks about how virtual dom works or what is react or where is implementation of setTimeoutEffect(in v6 or ESMAScripts). Or Even in Nodejs interview they ask about event loop or v8 engine r libuv which is not required while programming with nodejs. I was just curios why they ask these, because in actual development I dont think these concepts are much helpful (even if those are the once we build things on), these are only for what is happening in background
