Mock interview with Yan Gu

1 services

Behavioral questions or leadership interview questions are probably the most frequently asked questions during a job interview.

However, I've interviewed so many talented data scientist candidates at a FAANG company. Some of them are very smart, did really well answering technical and coding questions, but they still didn't get their dream job offers. Why?

Because they didn't prepare behavioral questions and didn't know how to answer them,  which in the end, cost them their dream jobs!

Trust me, even if you are only interviewing for a technical job, behavioral questions still matter significantly, and you need to be well prepared, don't ever overlook them.

Behavioral questions may sound intimidating, and some of the questions may catch you off guard or even annoy you if you are not seen them before

But if you follow the strategy outlined in this tutorial and keep practicing those 9 types of behavior questions, you will nail them in your job interview.
