This is not only possible, but incredibly common. Candidates are routinely surprised when it does because they don’t quite understand the interview process and how they are evaluated.

Nov 22, 2015 careers bay area, job seeking Gayle McDowell Comment Nov 22, 2015 careers bay area, job seeking Gayle McDowell Comment If you want an A+ career in technology, you should move to the San Francisco Bay Area. The same argument can probably be made of finance and New York. It’s not that you can’t do it in another city, but your odds are just much better in your industry’s hub. So if you want an A+ career and your industry has a clear hub, go there.

It's broken, good candidates fail, bad candidates just memorize the answers, yadda yadda yadda. That's all true. But this is also true: all processes are broken.

But first, let me explain what awesome careers look like. They don't look like nice linear graphs, where you're moving up a little bit each month. (Heck, even so-so careers don't look like that. You don't move up every month. You get a bit better at your career every month, but you move up in big steps.)

Study these sheets before your interview. Really understand them. Email me questions if you have any. As you prepare for interviews, use these sheets. Walk through your next coding problem closely following the procedure below. It’ll help you — I promise.

Feb 5, 2014 announcements Gayle Laakmann McDowell Comment Feb 5, 2014 announcements Gayle Laakmann McDowell Comment Getting acquired by a big tech company is a dream for many start-ups. That dream comes with caveats. The acquiring firm may love your product but they still want to assess the skill of your technical team. As a result, they will often interview them just as they would “normal” candidates applying to software engineering and PM roles. For the last year, I've been semi-secretly offering a new service -- what I call "acquisition consulting". People found out about me from word of mouth mostly, and word spread. Now that I've got quite a few successes behind me, it's time to announce publicly what I've been doing.

In fact, they're very flawed (more on this another time -- and a bit in here too). However, companies have a variety of reasons for doing this -- some good, some bad.

Sep 18, 2013 hiring interviewing Gayle Laakmann McDowell 5 Comments Sep 18, 2013 hiring interviewing Gayle Laakmann McDowell 5 Comments There’s a trend among start-ups (and some larger companies) that worries me: giving candidates “homework” assignments. Homework assignments lead to candidate abuse. Knock it off (or at least be reasonable). I’ve seen many friends and clients go through this. As a pre-screening round before an onsite interview, a company gives them a “homework” assignment.

They offer a lot of value and most people's issues with them ("trick questions!" "no relationship to real world coding!" "in the real world you'd just look up stuff like this!") are easily refuted. However, they're far from a perfect science. On Dice.com, I discuss why technical interviews work, and why they don't. Click to read more.

I like helping people; this is why I do what I do! In the real, time-limited world, I can only respond to about 25% of the questions I get from people. If your goal is to get a response from me, then you’re shooting to “outperform” 75% of people. Here’s how you can maximize your odds of getting a response from me and other experts.

The ones with pretty graphics, splashy designs, and beautiful layouts. Often they adapt the design of Facebook or Google and make it into their resume. Journalists lovewriting articles about these "amazingly cool resumes." There are even companies you can buy these resumes from (ick!). But do employers love them? Not so much.
