How much fg for how long? What was your major? What programming languages are you familiar with? Will you provide a resume?

I often interview entry level candidates for the company I work for. I could do a mock interview and talk through what you did well and what you need to improve on, however everywhere interviews differently. The best practice is going in to interview and there is a large demand for people with programming skill so you shouldn't have trouble getting a number of interviews if you live near a city.

Both, if interested we can discuss further via pm, I've messaged you both.

To answer some questions, first off I'm from UK so we don't have the major/minor thing like in the US we just study a subject at university. In my case, Computer Science.

As for what you're saying, I completely understand that experience will improve my interview skills and I agree. But, I am literally just searching for someone that has a general idea of the on the spot Programming questions an entry level software engineer at a high level company will be asked. Then if we were to run through a few "mock interviews" to gain experience prior to myself having the real thing.

But as stated, I've pmed you both, If you're still interested we can figure something out! :)

In what development path do you want to go?
Web, iOS, game dev, desktop apps etc?

Interviews are usually different, for example if you are aiming for full-stack web dev process, you would first get some task to do, probably to build some CRUD.

After that you would be invited for an interview where you would mostly talk about that project, there might be some basic algorithms, naming a few design patterns etc.

If you are aiming for google or facebook, interview will mostly depend on algorithms and data structures (linked lists, binary tree etc.)

Also, there is an awesome book out there named "Cracking the code".
That book have almost all questions that you could expect in an interview. Take a look :)

This guy pretty much nailed it. Can say I've been through quite some of these, helps if you know the company beforehand, what you're actually planning to do for the company (Frontend/Backend developer), and if you know someone in the company. Makes life alot easier.
