Yet again, I am in front of my laptop posting a few moments from my life. So, I received a call from a company yesterday and it was not an unexpected one like all the places I apply, I didn’t apply for this one myself my resume was forward by someone. I was already told to prepare for it, as I would be asked a few questions. Anyway, I didn’t anticipate the amount/type of questions the interviewer would ask me. This guy interviewed me as if I have memorized the entire object-oriented programming book… Robert Lafore sit next to me kindly! Yes, I don’t remember anything until I revise it.
If anyone else goes for the post of a software engineer, these are the questions they will ask!
- What are the pillars of OOP?
- What is the difference b.w structure and class?
- What are constructors and modifiers?
- How many variables can a constructor have?
- How many destructors are made for 4 constructors in a class?
- What is polymorphism?
- What is abstraction?
- What is a trigger?
- What is a process?
- What is a deadlock?
This is as far as I remember!
I am not a 100 GB memory card. People question you as if they are gonna pay you a million! Neither am I Einstein or the Rain man… I can’t recall something I learned around 3 years ago without revision. I am a normal girl! The bottom line of the story is that I am sick and tired of people judging me on the basis of few memorized questions and concepts! Stop it! For your information, the people who always score 100/100 are the ones who rote learn and they don’t even have the guts to hold a mouse in their hands! I was fair and I gave fair answers saying I don’t remember. I didn’t beat about the bush. I don’t know the pillars of OOP, the only thing I remember is that it has classes, that is different from c-language in which a code is written and executed as one. A structure’s variables are defined once, a classes variables can be changed or modified, unlike structures! I don’t remember constructors and modifiers. I know polymorphism w.r.t chemistry. A simple carbon can be in multiple forms. It can be a diamond or it can be dry ice! A trigger comes when something that is not likely to occur, occurs like a 16-bit register if it overloads with 32-bit data! I can’t define a process or a deadlock!
Sorry to all who admire this language! I hated it the day I gave viva in 2nd year and I hate it today once again! I don’t even wanna revise any of it again. Give the damn position to someone else, I don’t want it anyways! I just want happiness!
People need to deal with shit they possess! Get therapy! Stop the judgment and check the real potential of a person!
