Hi everybody. Iโ€™m looking for new grad referrals. ๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿ˜…
A little bit about me:

-4 internships at Uber, Blend, 2 Big N (or companies similar to these :D)
-Finished the recommended problems for EPI + grinded LC ~~ 300 LC lifetime
-Did all the EPI DP problems and most of the variants (can help if needed)
-Holding new grad offers from MS and Apple
-Latest LC sprint started April 2019, a little everyday
-Side project that I pitched to VCs for a class (Blind for university students)

Target companies:
-Tableau, Zillow, Snowflake, Square, Convoy, Cruise and other Seattle companies
-Quant hedge funds in NY / Chicago / anywhere
-Unicorns in SF Bay Area: Blend, Rubrik, Coinbase, Waymo, etc...

If thereโ€™s anything I can help you with let me know, advice or referrals and the like :)
Iโ€™m thinking about writing a half-joking book on interview prep about little interview tricks / optimizations titled: โ€œEmbrace your inner Chad: Rockstar interview tipsโ€

      What if coding is my hobby and I work because I love it, not because it gives me money?

    • So if someone gave you 10 million youโ€™d still code for 40 hours a week? Iโ€™d be sailing around on my yacht to tiny islands drinking out of coconuts personally, but I respect the grind..

      @foggydesi, yes retire early is the dream, at least as in not being beholden to a company or job for money to live. it would be fun to pursue my own ideas / goals.

      Yes it died b/c of trolling and uncontrolled bullying, we got hammered a lot on that, hence Blind + my thing needs moderation
      Sep 28
    • I used it, was kinda fun actually! Definitely some issues though and people expose their true selves when anonymous. What do you mean by โ€œwe got hammered on thatโ€ as in like Apple or you got drunk and went on it? ๐Ÿ˜‚

      as in investors and advisors kept asking us how we would succeed when yik yak failed because of trolling

    • Ohhh gotcha. People have been trying to tame the internet for years. Throw in college students and anonymity and it was basically an abomination. Lots of racist people and oddly people trying to hook up with each other on my campus ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

      true, but i havenโ€™t heard of any changes to pay yet for tableau new employees. prolly still enough time for to get their new grad grant before they change it. they might also be left alone like microsoft did with linkedin
