EVENT DETAILS
Because jobhunting & preparing for job interviews by yourself sucks.

It's better to do it with a community! Come to Noisebridge & practice whiteboarding, algorithms, & other interviewing techniques together with others!! =D (This is also a support group for job-hunters.)

This event will be in the Hackitorium, & will be self-organized / self-directed!! ^_^

All experience levels are welcome.

(Arrive any time between the start & finish times, at your own convenience. And leave whenever you want. There's no strict start & end time.)

(For newcomers, this is how you get in: to go inside, please ring the doorbell at the gate, then go to the 3rd floor.)

This workshop was inspired by "Whiteboarding Wednesdays" at Dev Bootcamp.

But unfortunately, this is the world that we live in.

My personal tips to get good at interviews:
There are actually 2 different skills being tested in interviews, especially whiteboarding interviews. The first skill is public speaking / communication skills, & the second skill is technical proficiency. Both of these skills need to be practiced in tandem, & are equally important.

These are what you need to do:
1) Practice public speaking / communication skills
- Get used to speaking in front of others & narrating your thoughts. Going to whiteboaring interview practice gets you used to talking in front of other people, so instead of associating the emotions of nervousness & anxiousness with public speaking, you associate public speaking with familiarity.

2) Know your stuff
- Be very comfortable & familiar with your skills, because it's hard enough to do public speaking, while trying to remember the technical parts.
- Good way to get better at programming is to work on something you want to make, or work on something that you really care about. Example, I love videogames, & I want to make videogames, so that's how I got better at programming.
