Frequently asked questions
If applying for a position as a software engineer or developer, knowing how to create and use algorithms becomes crucial in preparing for a coding interview. Those preparing for an interview with a tech giant such as Google, Facebook, and TikTok should demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of algorithms and their development. Interviewers will very often ask candidates to write algorithms out in code in programming languages such as C++, Java, and Python. Common algorithms every aspiring software engineer, programmer, and developer should know before an interview are sort algorithms (merge sort and quick sort) and search algorithms (linear and binary), to name a few.
