Problem of the day
Tip 1 : Prepare all standard DSA questions from GFG very well. Be thorough with everything mentioned in your resume since the interviewer can ask anything. Avoid writing things you do not know.
Tip 2 :Have 2-3 good projects and in-depth knowledge about the same. Be prepared to explain your project in detail and answer any follow-up questions.
Tip 3 : Prepare the question you would ask your interviewer beforehand. This is an excellent chance to make a good impression. Do not lose your calm and be confident. The interviewers are very friendly and help you if you get stuck somewhere.
Tip 1 : Mention at least two projects on your resume. Having both projects from different domains is a plus point. For example, I had one project on machine learning and another one was a web development project.
Tip 2 : Only mention the things you are confident about. Do not lie on resume and prepare each and every point on resume thoroughly.
It was around 6 pm and was held on Hackerrank. Having switched on WebCam during the entire duration was mandatory. We were required to solve 2 questions under 65 mins. Solving one problem completely, along with some of the test cases of another, was enough for getting shortlisted.
The interview started with my brief introduction, and the interviewer then proceeded to ask some questions. I was asked to write a code for these two questions:
1. Find the distances between two given nodes of a binary tree.
2. Find the next greater number with the same set of digits.
After I was able to solve both questions, he proceeded to ask some questions about my projects. He seemed interested in the ML project and asked some basic questions regarding the same. We had a brief discussion on how Machine learning can be used in the Chemical Engineering field. He asked me why I was aspiring to become a software engineer despite having a Chemical engineering background. The round ended with me asking him about the types of projects interns are provided to work on at JPMC
This round was comparatively short. It also started with my brief introduction. The interviewer then asked me about my area of interest, which was Data Structure and Algorithms. He asked me how to find the Nth node from the end in a linked list using a single traversal and LRU Cache implementation. He also seemed interested in the ML Project and asked to explain it in brief. He then gave me a situation wherein I had to make a model for a self-driving car. I gave him a basic idea of how the model will be trained, and he was satisfied. The round ended with him asking generic questions like 'Why JPMC?' , 'Why I chose to code despite belonging to the non-CSE background.'
It was late at night (around 12:30 am) but was crisp and short. HR was really friendly. I was called for the HR round on the same day as the other two rounds. HR asked me why I chose JPMC and why I aspire to become a software engineer. He then asked me about my skill set and how I will enhance it if I got selected. He then asked if I had any questions for him, where I asked him how the virtual working environment has been different from the office experience at JPMC, and if there were any significant challenges.
