      Maybe if you’re from Microsoft to make sure you didn’t make additional bad decisions..:)

    Yes. We evaluate based on what porn you watch. You better start watching a lot of tentacle porn if you wanna work at google.

      Which role at Google requires a particular taste in porn? I have an on-site coming, so now a bit worried.

      That is confidential. If I were you, I would watch all categories just to be safe. Better success odds than leetcoding.

      I watch a lot of fetish porn. Will that count against me? I just can't enjoy tentacle stuff 😣

    I started looking for a job after a year and sent an email to a recruiter. Within 15min there was an email from a Google recruiter. I don't think it was a coincidence.

    Stop mentioning that we base it off your history. There was a project to identify coders and give them a "rabbit hole" into the interview process based on search history. But I've been in hiring committee. It's based solely on resume and interview feedback. Employees can't even look at user history.

    Yes. It’s what they mean by β€œgoogliness.” If your browser or YouTube history wont fit the hive mind they give you the boot. Also bad is not having a history for them to find.

    If you are using Google Chrome while practicing leetcode, you'll never get a problem you have solved!

    I remember i read a post(I don't remember it was quora or some blog) , he was practising a lot of coading and then 1 day all of a sudden there was a pop shown, if he was interested interviewing with google, and preliminary screening was done immidiately after he selected yes, they do have some kind of mechanism.
