Interview tips for a senior swe who is not a Senior Swe
I have total YOE of 9 years with my relavant at around 3. I was a data Engineer - mostly sql before I took a full SWE role. It's difficult for me to compete with people vying for a Senior / Principal engineering role. I have at times overstated my experience to be around 5 to get shortlisted.
How do people who have been in the SWE role for a long time advise me to sell myself , develop myself to score good at interviews.
I have spent last few months narrowing the tech expertise gap - learning as much as I could
Reading good code
doing a bit of leetcode etc
PS : I really like being an SWE and would want to do that going forward.
