Basically interviews will be taken in two different rounds:
Round 1. VIRTUAL INTERVIEW
So this can be on the phone or on the “google meet” interview . Just in case, if you are applying for a software engineer role, you’ll be supposed to answer the coding question, where you’ll have to write the whole coding while being on the virtual meeting. On a normal basis, questions asked can be logical, behavioral, or situational but don’t worry they all will be related to your job or professional skills.
The time range for these meetings is generally 1 hour or 45 minutes. And also make sure you get on the meeting with headphones, leaving your hands free to write if asked.
Round 2. DIRECT INTERVIEW
As we all know, like a very general interview, there will be around four to five interviewers, they also are googlers only. You don’t have to panic. Just relax. You need to realize at that moment that ” you can do it “, motivate yourself by saying that ” you will get this job at Google “.
Remember you might not know some answers, but there is no such question in the world, which cannot be answered. Try asking your mind. You can say that you aren’t sure but you still will answer it. You never have to say that you don’t know. Because your attitude of giving up easily won’t let you achieve the job at Google.
Mostly they’ll be asking, all questions related to your profession. If you have prepared well, then you will surely crack it. They’ll be checking your ability to solve problems and answering. Questions related to communication skills and decision making will be asked in order to check your leadership qualities.
They’ll be asking about what change you want to bring if you get this job at Google. This will explain your potential and individuality. You must be good at answering how you have the capability to work out of your comfort zone. Also, you must be ready with the answer of the most commonly asked question, i.e. which Google product is your favorite, and if you get a job at Google then, what other changes you want to bring in Google products?
