Tech interview experiences from both sides of the table
The aim with this form is to gather a set of experiences which will enable people to understand the interviewing process. Our targets will be graduates, job-seekers and people returning to the workforce after a career break.

Responses to this form will be anonymised and published as a guide to interviewing experiences and practice: we will remove all names and specific company details, but please don't write anything here that you wouldn't like public.

We are looking to hear from both interviewers and interviewees. If you have conducted interviews in several companies, or have several interview experiences to talk about, then please do feel free to fill in the form more than once. This is not a scientific study, just a collection of experiences and anecdotes to help people navigate the appointment process.
