Take it from People
We @ AlgoUniversity, house a young energetic team of ACM ICPC world finalists, Olympiad medalists (won a total 4 medals for India!), people with experience of managing operations in Edtech startups, and engineers from Google, Apple, etc. Our core tea
The first interview is always the hardest for anyone. At algo university, I had the option to attend multiple mock interviews. When I was able to excel in one of the mock interviews then I got the confidence to do it again and again. Swapnil sir believed in me and Manas sir pushed me to dream bigger and to be persistent in my vision. Even without any prior internship experience, I bagged an International offer from Tiktok, Singapore. All thanks to my mentors at Algo University.
When companies started to visit our campus for Internship opportunities, I didn’t get any offers so I felt disheartened about it. I talked to Manas and he helped me prepare for Interview by practicing questions designed for me to improve my coding and also making me think like an Interviewer. So when I appeared for Interview for Microsoft, I was well prepared and aced the interview and got a Data Science Internship.
Having very little time to prepare for Interview, I found AlgoUniversity’s material very helpful. Not only till the interviews but also after completing the interviews, the guidance and long personal discussions I have had when I was deciding between different offers like Codenation, Amazon, Flipkart were really helpful and invaluable.
I hadn't prepared for Interviews prior to companies visiting our college. After seeing my friends getting selected for Internship in top companies, I started to panic. My friends suggested to me that Manas can help me. Being from an electronics background, I had little knowledge in coding so he helped me in learning coding from scratch and also how to face an interview. Thanks to him, I landed an internship in Walmart Labs.
Mentors at AlgoUniversity helped me in covering topics ranging from Data Structures, Algorithms, Computer Networks and System design which are asked in technical Interviews. Their elegant approach to write concise and easily understandable code enhanced my coding practices. I got placed during initial days of campus placement and also got an International offer from Shopee, Singapore.
In my third year, I tried preparing for Internship on my own but unfortunately didn’t get one. So when I came in my 4th year, I decided to ask Manas for his help in my preparation. One big difference I started to observe now was that when I was stuck at a problem, I would not google the results but rather he would give me some sequential hints which would help me think of solutions on my own. This enhanced my problem solving skills and eventually I got a job as a Software Developer in Plivo Communications.
