Do they ask about your graduate projects for Amazon onsite interview if you are a working professional already 1 year into the job?

      OP
      That’s valid criticism, but kinda desperate here

    I can honestly say I don’t even look at the candidates resume, but in my interview someone asked me about a project on my resume. YMMV if it is on your resume you better be able to talk intelligently about it. If you can’t speak intelligently about a project you did only a year or two ago I’d seriously question your level of contribution to the project. I have projects on my resume from 5/6 years ago that I can still explain in depth the challenges I ran into.

    When I had mine few (quite a few actually) years ago, I was asked to explain my graduate project. I had four years of experience at that point. It really depends on the interviewer but most probably yes

    They may. These free form questions are usually to warm you up and let you talk about things you know well. It may also be if your experience isn’t sufficient and they need some extra data points to make a case for you. Either way you may be asked about any your previous experience and it is better not being made up and you better be ready to be exact on what YOU did and what someone else did and you should know what you did in every detail that is reasonable to remember.

    They asked me lots of STAR questions so I'd imagine this would be valid territory
