You should reflect back on your experience and gather some examples of projects that made you proud, feedback that helped you grow, and challenging projects that taught you lessons. It doesn't matter whether these experiences and examples are from classes, internships, or past jobs. What's important is having some examples in mind so you don't have to take too long during your interview to come up with responses to questions.
what zoomies have to say about interviewing
*All quotes obtained from Zoom
"Usually a phone screening with a recruiter, followed by multiple rounds of technical interviews. Recruiters are very friendly and actually feel like they are there to help you, not just place you in a role. If you make it past the recruiter stage, you end up getting a 1-on-1 technical screening interview.
Most companies will just give you a coding problem, say "go", and then stare at you for an hour while you struggle. At Zoom, the engineer interviewing you is here to help you find the solution. They will guide you to the correct answer, as they understand the interview process is more about if they can work with you, not if you can solve a random coding question in an hour. If you make it past that, you get to the "on-site" interview, which is pretty tough. That interview is usually with 4+ engineers and lasts for a few hours. They ask a lot of in depth questions about your experience, coding problems, etc. Be prepared to do this all at once and do not be afraid to ask questions!"
