Tip
Tip

Tip 1 : Before diving aimlessly into a sea of questions, try to create a roadmap for yourself. This roadmap will take into account your strengths and weaknesses and you should be allotting time accordingly.
Tip 2 : Companies like Samsung do check your resume and grill you accordingly. Make sure to have atleast 3 projects with 1 of them being pretty good.
Tip 3 : Ideally, all your projects should be deployed publicly: either on Github/Heroku/Kaggle/App Store depending on the type of development. This will give you an advantage over others.

Resume Tip
Resume tip

Tip 1 : Try not to lie. Only put things you are extremely confident about. You don't want to get blacklisted by the company.
Tip 2 : Try not to put trivial skills like Git/Github. Every developer is expected to know of these.
Tip 3 : Do not make any spelling mistakes on your CV. This just goes to show your carelessness.
