2 Years at Amazon, 0 Achievement. How to Handle Interviews?
I joined Amazon 2 years ago fresh out of college as an SDE-1. Unfortunately, I am not a good fit. My skills (both technical and soft skills) were just not up to par, and only 3 months in the job I already had a gut feeling that I wouldn't succeed at Amazon. I was constantly filled with fear of getting fired. However, this is my first full-time job, and I was also concerned about my visa issues so I had no other option but to work harder and improve.
I managed to drag out this experience to 2 years with the help of my manager who gave me chance after chance. However, for the past 2 years I have achieved 0 in my job. I know I deserve to be fired, and I am trying to prepare for interviews now.
For the past 2 years, I have not delivered any meaningful project at all. Now I have nothing to list on my résumé, and I don't know what to say in behavioral interviews. I was never assigned any meaningful project. All I have done in my job is some trivial ops work -- renewing SSL certs, repurposing hosts, security patching, etc... , and don't think I can list them in my résumé, nor can I tell them in an interview.
Now I feel like a huge fraud, having 2 years experience at Amazon but with 0 actual achievement. Can anyone offer me advice on what to do?
