Description

Have you got a Quantitative Job Interview coming up?

Don't know where to start? Or maybe you just need a quick refresher to give yourself the best possible chance of securing that dream job?

If you want to land a Data Science or Quantitative Analyst job you've come to the right place.

By the end of this course you will be well equipped to answer some of the most common and challenging interview questions in Probability, Mathematics, Brain Teasers, and Logic. For example:

  • How many ping pong balls can you fit in a jumbo jet?
  • How many trailing zeros are there at the end of 1000 factorial?
  • What is the expected number of tosses required to get three heads in a row?
  • and much more...

During the course we'll do a deep dive into 24 Technical Interview Questions covering a step-by-step and repeatable approach for each problem.

I designed this course as there are very few, if any, online video resources available to help people prepare for a Technical Job Interview. Whilst books are great, they don't accurately emulate the real interview experience.

The aim is to present the course as if you and I are sitting in the interview together walking through the question, giving you the opportunity to pause and complete the question yourself when you have enough hints!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up now and make a wise investment in your career today!

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is especially designed for people preparing for a Technical Job Interview
  • You should have at least an intermediate background in Mathematics
  • This course does not cover technical interview questions specific to programming or finance
