@cjenkins812: Not sure if this has been asked before. But I’m curious to know what type of questions are asked in interviews for entry level programming positions.
@joshua.lawson: depends on what you’re interviewing for
you’re probably not going to get grilled on data structures and algorithms for an entry-level position, but if you’re interviewing as a front end dev, you’ll probably be expected to be competent in HTML, CSS & JS
@c.med: @cjenkins812 Like Joshua said if its anything HTML, CSS, JS framework than expect some questions and maybe a take home test to build something out. So expect easy and tricky questions.
For some reason people like to ask those things even though you don’t really need to use those two things as often
@joshua.lawson: oh, also people love FizzBuzz
@twhitt06: @cjenkins812 for Frontend be able to explain the basics of JS, HTML and CSS. Know what the box model is, know how to use media queries, understand how to write loops, know how to debug(!), etc
What dev tools do you use?
Have you worked in a project environment?
How would you approach a project?
How would you approach an issue?
How do you structure a task, which elements first?
How would you make a site responsive?
There’s a ton of resources out there to help you. Be confident about what you know and honest about what you don’t. Coming in as a junior you’re expected to know the basics and more than anything have a passion for what you do and be willing to learn.
@cjenkins812: Thank you so much for your responses. I will take all of this in. Its very helpful.
@john: if you guys/gals don’t mind, I’m going to post this convo to the forum. Agreed – super helpful
