Behavioural questions Some general questions about my background, education, aspirations
Be yourself, companies are looking for 'fit' more than anything else. If you don't get selected, it isn't about your abilities and skills, it is more about whether you are right for the company culture. Practise behavioural questions with your friends and family, and write down examples if you need. Always follow the STAR model.
Amazing offices which were only built a few years ago. Great location as well. Dress code depends on the department you are in. Some people wear casual clothes whilst others are in full suit and tie combo.
