CRITICAL THINKING INTERVIEW QUESTION
This question comes from Forbes…
Question: Describe a coworker’s or teammate’s working style.
Answer: “We ask candidates in project interviews to describe their coworkers’ working styles, what they respect most about them, and what they learned from them.
Does this person think about others? Can they distinguish between the strengths different coworkers add to the team? Can they identify anything beyond straight knowledge or skills that makes someone great/difficult to work with?
For example, “They knew Python really well” (meh) – “They had a talent to explain complex coding concepts in a way that was easily understood by everyone” (better).
“Great candidates can describe their coworkers working style in a nuanced manner with robust emotional vocabulary. Good candidates just say generically ‘good things’ about coworkers but can’t articulate details.”
– Nate Smith, Co-Founder and CTO of Lever
TECHNICAL INTERVIEW QUESTION (via LEETCODE)
Given an array with n objects colored red, white or blue, sort them in-place so that objects of the same color are adjacent, with the colors in the order red, white and blue.
Here, we will use the integers 0, 1, and 2 to represent the colors red, white, and blue respectively.
Note: You are not supposed to use the library’s sort function for this problem.
Input: [2,0,2,1,1,0] Output: [0,0,1,1,2,2]
- A rather straight-forward solution is a two-pass algorithm using counting sort.
First, iterate the array counting the number of 0’s, 1’s, and 2’s, then overwrite the array with total number of 0’s, then 1’s, and followed by 2’s.
- Could you come up with a one-pass algorithm using only constant space?
LIFE TIP OF THE WEEK
This week’s tip comes from Kununu…
Follow the 24-hour rule. When you’re ready to lose your cool – no matter how bad you think the other person has it coming to them – commit to waiting 24 hours before sending your response.
There’s a good chance that in those 24 hours you will come to your senses, cool down, learn more information that changes your perspective, or come up with a much more productive way to address the problem. In any case, you’ll be better prepared for the discussion.
(This works in relationships, too.).
THIS WEEK’S INTERNET FINDS
- Trump isn’t allowed to block people on Twitter anymore
- Florida city still trying to figure out who sent a mass zombie alert to residents
