Good post from my colleague Lizzie Mortimer highlighting our excellent tech-related careers resources. A must-read if you are aiming for top tech organisations like Google, Microsoft, Apple (and IBM, Fujitsu…there are others!) Our resources are also available at Weir Building, Kings Buildings.
The Careers Service has recently added a number of tech related careers books to our collection of reference materials.
- Cracking the Coding Interview, 6th Edition: 189 Programming Questions and Solutions by Gayle Laakmann McDowell
- Data Science Interviews Exposed by Yanping Huang
- Cracking the Tech Career: Insider Advice on Landing a Job at Google, Microsoft, Apple, or any Top Tech Company by Gayle Laakmann McDowell
These books provide advice from those in the know about what to expect from tech interviews, the types of psychometric and technical tests which are used and how to stand out from the other candidates. Find them in the red section, and the green section (M) at the Third Floor, Main Library Building.
