experience - 15+ java, includes 8+ android

obligatory tc - nada, zilch, zuk

location - NJ / NYC.

I have a handful of FAANG Interviews lining up.
I was hoping to get some In-person Interview coaching.

Any good resources?
Any senior, staff, l5 and e5 considering offering in-person interview experience and coaching / mentoring over the weekends for potential senior and staff android roles? 2 to 3 hours of white-boarding, macbook code-challenges, system design, particularly behavioral Interviews.

It's not that i can't do adequately decent. It's just that i have not been able to figure it out myself what is it that's mostly always been a strong no-hire after grueling day long In-person interviews. If only somebody could help me figure it out what is it that's glaringly inadequate that I should work to improve upon?

      If gym trainers can ask for $80 / hour I don't understand why can't interview trainers charge $100, when you are pretty sure the ROI will be significant.

      Also, I think if you don't pay for these services you won't care and you won't get the results you want. First hand experience.

      $899/ month. that is more than federal, state, county all taxes combined for an average american that is still a FAANG aspirant!!! I wonder how does that company even make money? who signs-up for that kind of a subscription?

      Pramp is great for mock interviews. But you may not get critical feedbacks. But better than doing nothing.

      @cruella brightscript messed with my head, and i lost my job. any good resources to learn brightscript in case i will have to in the future? i'd prefer not to, but i'd never know. and what's a good ide for brightscript? and when are you guys going to provide brightscript devs with a real-time debugger, so debugging isn't about log and print statements in the code?

    Why don’t you apply for tier 2 companies and use their interviews as a practice for faang?

    This is a well known and recommended practice - don’t make your dream job interview the first one you take.

    Most companies would have somewhat similar interviews to faang due to the talent flows and mixes.

      i have at least years of experience times a factor of 100 interviews under my belt. hasn't helped as much as it was supposed to. rate of rejection is way high than what it should really be. reaching out because i can't figure out the gap by myself. some people just walk into an interview and walk out with an offer. i have had very tiny intervals of that happening, and the interviews were a breeze, the quality wasn't really what i was looking forward to.

      Are you telling me you can’t tell which interview questions you nailed and which one you failed and why? After hundreds of interviews?

      That’s by itself is an issue with self awareness ... start from that perhaps.

      I know interviews i had done poorly and never got an offer. Some interviews were bad in my opinion and yet i got an offer, almost all consulting though. Some really important fte interviews, certainly not faang, that I think i was adequate never made an offer.
