Ever wondered what all the employees at Google, IBM, Amazon, Microsoft, and Oracle have in common. How did they land jobs at these amazing companies…

The secret sauce is their well-informed choices and the art of positioning to the company.

The world of IT is not the more the same as early 2000s. The global IT giants such as Google, IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Amazon etc. have established clear leadership over thousands of other IT companies and have set highest standards of interviewing.

Lateral thinking

Must have for college students, Mid-levelSoftware IT professional and start up IT companies

"Execute the job interview" is a peculiar book (Perhaps the only one) which discusses the "MUST HAVE" preparation before diving into the sea of IT job opportunities. Author has done an excellent job to details the most relevant technical questions that one should prepare with. Book also details the behavioral and psychological factors for job interviewer.
Today's IT industry is full of different languages, technologies and programming languages which makes entry level engineers/programmers confuse. Author discusses the differentiation among different IT technologies which helps to visualize the technology map. This helps to understand where one stands, what one want to achieve and how to walk through toward it.
I hope to get more short and concise details in next version.
In short, great job by author.

“Thanks for the book you shared, its very informative and very well organized. Sure it will help me as i am preparing to join back to work after a gap of 2 yrs. “By a Software professional with 2+ years of experience in software industry ( Java Programmer)”

——————–

The first half of the book some questions are repeated. Either questions or scenarios or answer is repeated. Otherwise first half is very good for beginner and middle level professional like me. In the second half I found it become very specific for professional software engineers even I skipped some pages specially which explains code and issues related answers. I think the one who works in the similar field can get it completely. The book fulfils your purpose to guide the software professionals for their job interviews, if possible try to put some more material for beginners it depends on your objective of writing the book.By a Software professional with 5+ years of experience in software industry(Device Drivers,Embedded Programming)

——————–

When I first received it, I had quickly glanced through your book as I could not get time during my transition. But yesterday I read it in detail and could cover around 35-40% of it. This is definitely a very valuable resource for someone who’s sincerely preparing for job. If the person has got some work experience, your book provides excellent guidance to articulate his/her experience and profile. Your book is a very realistic read…while reading I myself could co-relate so many of my experiences with what you have described in your book. Your writing style is also very interesting and keeps one engaged. Keep it up buddy! You’re doing the real kind & great work by spreading the light…sharing your experiences for the betterment of others.By a Software professional with 10+ years of experience in software industry (Network Security)

Today i got chance to go through the book ( Haven’t finished it yet), it is a “Masterpiece” that is what i can say. I took printout of the book and started reading, it came to me like the most needed question-answers set which we never prepare before interview or simply ignore it, but those questions has a big impact on interview. Some of the questions were from frequently asked one, but the way you explained the alternate answers is amazing. It actually gives us pointers to frame our answers for interviews, also helps us in understanding the intention / mind set of interviewer. Author have caught it well. All i can say …The most needed and less cared segment of technical interviews can now easily be prepared using this book.

I strongly feel that a large number software professionals will get benefited from this book, i will let you know about my experience. I am now going to forward your book to my email groups, I will talk to people personally to know ( People from different work area like testers, programmers etc) what they feel good in this book, and what they feel should be there in this book.

All in the end….

Its really a great effort & hard work done in compiling questions, and on top of that giving alternate answers to those questions. By a Software professional with 8+ years of experience in software industry (VOIP,Telecom,Datacom)

The book was sufficient for me to prepare for the interview I was preparing for. Thanks for writing it . By a final year B.Tech Student from a top Indian engineering college.

Its very good to prepare general question such as why you want to change etc.,On Algorithm side, I couldn’t find it very deep. May be this could be good if someone is just starting,Overall good work.

I have gone through the open ended questions and they were very helpful. I am a fresher,so the starting chapters were more for experienced persons,rather than me. Overall,the book is very good.. By a final year B.Tech Student from a top Indian engineering college.
