User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
My favorite ahh its kind of difficult to say ... Bcoz most of subjects were my favourite but most intresting subject is data structure.
 
2.
Calculus. It forced me to pay attention to detail while grasping the formulas that are pertinent to the pipe trades industry.
 
3.
C#/.NET, because the way it was structured, the students had to mostly teach themselves (which I had been doing anyway with respect to C++, the Web, and programming in general). It gave me a lot of confidence that I could find the answer to most any question.
 
Question

What do you think you might dislike about this job?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
The work shouldn't divide unequally among the team member.
 
2.
Like most human beings, I enjoy time off but if a person dislikes their chosen career perhaps they should make a change, I will admit there are going to be frustrating situations, issues and people but those moments will pass. It is our responsibility to learn from these events, not dwell on them.
 
3.
I do not dislike anything about working. I love to work and give it my all.

Question

How will this position help you in your career?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
I think this is just start of my carrer and it will take me to new heights.
 
2.
Most folks want to earn a high salary immediately. I was raised that in order to advance in life you usually need to start at the bottom of the ladder. One must first attend kindergarten and then work towards their diploma from that starting point.
 
3.
First, I will have work experience in the technologies we're discussing. I will learn more advanced aspects of these technologies. I will be able to do more, and be a better mentor and advisor, and the latter are among my biggest job satisfactions.

Question
16 of 25
What was the most difficult part about your training or education?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
I think maths class was difficult to attend most of time.
 
2.
The least challenging. It is easy to get bored and lose interest if the course material does not draw you in and force you to give all of your effort to learn, absorb and excel.
 
3.
Formal logic, because the ppl who did the best in class had a certain level of math-nerdism that I didn't have. Numerical analysis - same thing. Database component of C# classes, because I had zero background in DBs before that (I am rectifiying that now).
 
Question
17 of 25
Tell me about yourself.
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
I am punctual. I am detail oriented. I believe I must give 100% of myself. I am reliable. I am honest. I am trustworthy. I am dependable. I am the person you're looking to fill this position.
 
2.
Although I'm a good writer, I've always been good with math and logic. I tried playing music professionally in my early 20s, but I could not find a niche I was really comfortable with. I remember enjoying computer programming (what little I did) as an undergrad, so I investigated CS graduate education and decided to go for a master's. I got a job with HP right out of grad school and stayed there for 20 years (mostly in CA). I came back to CO in 2001 for family reasons, and having taken early retirement, I was able to just manage my investments and do volunteer work. Thanks to listening to tech podcasts, I got the itch to program again, and started rebooting myself in late 2013 ...

Why did you choose our organization when applying?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers

I think for fresher its good to join here ... And as a developer its good here I can learn many things here.
 
2.
NAS Lemoore is closer to my home than Fresno, where I had been working since 1996. I was actually forced to make a career change due to the recession of 2008 and pipefitting was the trade I fell in to.
 
3.
I scanned Craigslist one day looking for "entry/junior C#". I then went to the company website and saw it was a local company that had an interesting mission that had, at least in part, a service component.
 
Question

How did your education prepare you for this career?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
Not that much.. Its only they give me hint about that and it was enough to change flame into fire.
 
2.
This trade has nothing to do with the subject of my major, Perhaps the most important thing college prepared me for was to meet deadlines.
 
3.
Exposure to C#/ASP.NET with an instructor who has deep experience. In general I have learned general web programming (front end) on my own.
 
Question
22 of 25
What challenges are you looking for in this position?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
Not so much.. M happy with that.
 
2.
Admittedly, I am not in my 20's anymore, so I do question the longevity of how my body will react to physical labor. However saying that, I often outlast and outperform a lot of the newer and younger employees who've come on board.
 
3.
Will it offer the variety I need? Obviously there are peaks and valleys in any job. Will Agile beat/trump that principle? In the past I have had to look to my personal (hobby) programming to keep myself excited about programming.
