Microsoft visited my campus in July 2022. The whole course of occurred on-line for me.
After the check, the shortlisted college students had been scheduled for interviews. There have been two interviews, one Tech, and one Tech + HR.
First Spherical: I used to be requested one query which was to seek out the longest growing sequence (contiguous) in a grid, which I solved with a DP + DFS method, The interviewer twisted some constraints within the query and requested questions round it and in addition requested questions on complexities of the options and what would occur if the constraints had been scaled up, and in addition requested me to dry run some instances.
Second spherical: Although it’s a Tech. + HR spherical, I used to be solely requested one coding query, perhaps on account of an absence of time. On this spherical, he requested me to make use of any editor of my alternative and to share the display. The query was a variation of Prime ok numbers in a stream I used to be requested to do that query with phrases as a substitute of numbers. After I coded the method, he twisted the query somewhat bit, nevertheless it was manageable to reply. Once more, this spherical additionally had a query based mostly on scaling up the constraints of the issue. So the corporate asks questions based mostly on the constraints, and to reply these questions, one should know the nuances of the strategy they’re utilizing to unravel the issue.
The completion of the second spherical concluded the method, and the outcomes had been introduced the following day.
