How I turned Pandemic into an Opportunity and got a great job?

โ€œIn the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.โ€ -Albert Einstein

The Corona Virus Pandemic has affected a lot of lives. Millions of people lost their jobs and some of them are still struggling to get one. I believe the opportunity is everywhere. The key is to develop the vision to see it. Thatโ€™s the reason I succeeded to uplift my career to the next level even during this hard time. Itโ€™s been an adventure so far and so Iโ€™m excited to write about it here.

  1. Coding Round ( 120โ€“150 minutes ): If everything goes well in the first round, they will ask about your availability and you will get an online coding assessment on websites like Hackerrank, etc. You could expect 4โ€“5 coding problems on Data structures and Algorithms like Array, Graph, Trees, etc and that you have to do them purely in a specific language, for me it was Golang, and some SQL related questions too. I really liked the difficulty level and the standard of the questions. It was like the questions that mostly FAANG asks. Note that each question has some points based on its difficulty level and you get them for each passing test-case. They might ask you for feedback on the assessment. I attempted all of them and thankfully my solutions passed for each question and got points in each of them. :)
  2. Technical Round ( 45โ€“60 minutes ): This round will only take place if you perform well in the coding round. During the technical interview, the interviewer will assess your technical knowledge and you will have to discuss your solutions submitted in the coding round.
  3. Final Round ( 30- 45 minutes ): This will be more like a behavioral interview. The logic is that how you behaved in the past will predict how you will behave in the future. Also, they might ask for your salary expectations if not asked before.
