A knowledge oriented interview preparation framework that suits their goals
Planning the phases of interview process to avoid burnout
Become better at current job while preparing for a job change by systematic upskilling
Finer software engineering and technical details that help a candidate standout during interviews


  • Working in or planning to work in software industry
  • Not looking for a job urgently



The course is for people who want to uplevel their engineering skills and search for better opportunities without burning out.

Interviews are becoming more time-consuming as the software industry gathers pace. In addition, new trends keep getting introduced, leaving candidates exhausted to keep up.

The course recommends a more systematic knowledge-driven framework over a burst coding mode in browsers.

Course Structure

  • Section 1: Necessity for an alternative approach inclined towards career growth instead of instant gratification.

  • Section 2: Foundation Phase (12- 9 months)

    • The gathering phase. Identify the possible sources for the relevant information.

  • Section 3: Reinforcement Phase (9 - 6 months)

    • The sorting phase. Organize the resources based on the refined needs of the job search.

  • Section 4: Convergence Phase (6 -3 months)

    • Drill down further to identify only the necessary information.

  • Section 5:  End game (3-0 months)

    • Execute with a clear plan built on all the gathered information.

  • Section 6: Conclusion

Key Takeaways:

  1. The idea is simple, prepare at your pace throughout the year and apply only when ready to invest 8 weeks for the potential employers.

  2. Maximize the learnings to capitalize on the current workplace or the new one!

I am a programmer with an MS in Electrical Engineering and 15+ years of experience in the software industry. I have designed and implemented software solutions for Digital Cinema Distribution, Distributed Systems, Embedded Systems, Map Making, Insurance, Email Servers, and Data acquisition system for a problem in the Astrophysics domain (master's thesis).

The course(s) are designed to help you in answering the following questions that dictate your priorities in life,

WHY are you pursuing your current profession?

How long do you WANT to pursue the current profession/job?

How long do you HAVE to pursue the current profession/job?

How long will your current profession/job RESPECT your contribution in exchange for rewards?

Remaining relevant for decades in any industry is not just hard but in many cases impossible. Accepting this fact can help you plan a peaceful retired life.

There are many more variables in the equation of your peace of mind, start identifying them in these few minutes of assignments.

Don't fall into the trap of ignoring knowledge because it's available for free or at discount. If you have recently enrolled, try to finish it over the upcoming weekend as a challenge.

I find peace in exploring the connection between the "How" and "Why" of any technical problem. Over the years I have realized that research is a lifestyle and engineering is an attitude.

The intent of all courses will be practical implementation and a long-term career perspective.

Your ideas and suggestions are always welcome.
