How to prepare for (and ace) the technical interview

Time-consuming and stressful, technical interviews can make or break your chances for landing a job. The stress level is even higher for self-taught developers and those interviewing for the first time. But with the right preparation and practice, your next technical interview will be a breeze, no matter your background.

“Non-traditional candidates are really intimidated by technical screenings, coding interviews, because they’ve been made to feel they’re not qualified without that CS degree. But I don’t think that’s true,” says Gayle Laakmann McDowell, founder of technical career consulting firm CareerCup and author of Cracking the Coding Interview.

More important than having a degree, McDowell says, is being able to crack the technical interview to prove you have the chops to excel in the role, a completely manageable undertaking if you know what you’re up against.

A technical interview is a chance for hiring managers to evaluate how you approach and solve real-world problems, and to benchmark the depth and breadth of your skillset and general knowledge using coding challenges, word problems, peer discussions, puzzles and brain teasers.
