Hey Guys

I have recently had my 2nd round, face to face interview for the SE graduate Job. It lasted 2:30hrs and the first hour was spent with a woman in HR asking you more competency based questions to really try and engage what kind of person you are. You couldn’t really prepare for them, but if you take your time and try and think of a situation based on the question you will be fine.

The next 1:30hrs was spent with a senior manager of the technology department. He asked me about technologies I know and have worked with as well as what I think are the new up and coming technologies. He also asked how I kept up to date with the changes and innovations within the market. He then had 5-6 pages of computing theory questions. These were along the lines of:

Whats the difference between white box and black box testing?
Whats encapsulation/Polymorphism/Inheritance?
Whats the JVM?
How would you start a thread?
What and how does Garbage collection work?
Questions about data structures.
What is a Class/Abstract Class/Interface?
What is a protected/static/Global/ local variable?

Hi Janani and aspire,

Did you guys receive any reply to your request for an earlier start date?

Hi nma25,

No, they said they would ring me if anything appeared. I have decided to stick with the original date however. I’m sure if I contacted them they would try to sort it.

Have you been offered a place?
