Message to Aspiring Students:
Consistency is the key. It’s never too late to start, it all depends on how consistent enough you are. So practice daily, even if you get rejected in some interviews, just remember that yahoo also rejected google. Hard work never fails. Just keep faith in yourselves and don’t leave the flow, just trust the process. In the end, all this hard work pays off.
Before the actual interview just do some mock interviews with your friend on google meet, so that you can get used to that environment which automatically builds confidence. While practicing the problems and discussing with your friends it is recommended to communicate in English so that in interviews you might not face many difficulties. Make a habit of analyzing the time and space complexity of each problem you practice.
At last what i want to say is that being from a tier – 3 colleges, if an average student like me has done it then why not you….it’s all depends on the practice….Remember that excuses don’t make progress….!
