I’m about to have an interview.. It’s for python and I am not prepared. I have 3 hours, what should I focus on? I know I definitely should have studied more but I have been having really bad nerves and stressing out all day so I would appreciate some positivity and constructive advice!

You know I think I stressed myself out at the thought of the interview more than I should have. I was so nervous I couldn’t focus on studying at all and then when I finally got to it, I was able to recall a lot more than I thought!

If you are unsuccessful on this interview, take some time to regroup. Buy a copy of _Cracking the Coding Interview_, and set yourself two hours of homework a night working problems in your language of choice. Do this for several weeks before you apply for another gig where you will have to write code in an interview.

I just recently left big 4 in July to pursue a role at a fintech company. It seemed great during the interview but once I got here it was very unorganized, not clear which team I would support, etc. Long story short, I was told we would have a hybrid work schedule and we are now required to go in-office full time 5 days a week and there have been a ton of layoffs recently. Should I stick it out or look for something else even though I’ve only been here 2 months?

How do you handle people who are like "I work 9-5, I can't get out of work, can you interview after?" No, because those are our business hours. Do you think we just work non-stop?

Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
