Having 17 years of work experience including stints at companies like Cisco and HealthEdge, Sachin Garg enjoyed a great and exciting professional career as a software engineer. As someone who loves what he does, he was pumped up about taking his career to the next level. He realized that by landing a FAANG job, he could enjoy a far more enriching life by landing a $300k+ job at a tier-1 company and working on exciting projects.
But he knew it was no easy feat, even with the vast professional experience that he had.
Many software engineers dream of landing job offers from top tech companies. The sad part is that a fraction of them receive offers from tier-1 companies.
Cracking technical interviews, particularly at companies like Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Amazon, is incredibly challenging. These interviews test your problem-solving and analytical skills, coding and programming skills, design skills, and domain knowledge.
Doing exceedingly well at your current job spells no guarantee that you can breeze past FAANG and Tier-1 interviews. The only way to crack these interviews is through a solid prep strategy and mastering the fundamentals.
In this case study, Sachin answers questions about why he decided to enroll for an interview prep program and why he zeroed-in on Interview Kickstart ans how it helped him land a $400K+ offer from LinkedIn.
