      OP
      I skipped them because from what I read on blind / my experience with the first few interviews they didn't really come up in data engineering interviews + I have a hard time understanding them. I am still doing Leetcode every day and have added them into the mix because I do think they are important, I just wanted to optimize for the questions I felt would be most likely in an interview.

      I knew I really understood a question when 1) I could think of a way to solve it that was different than the solution I learned 2) I would bookmark the question and come back to it a few days later, If I could solve it without looking at the answers I felt good about moving forward.

      The bookmarking/ revisiting technique sounds key — thanks for sharing.

    How much time do you spend each day preparing? Are you working full time?

      OP
      I was/ am working full time. I spent about 2 hours a day, my commute is 1 hour each way so I have always read each direction and I do leetcode over lunch.

    Your post is so much motivating for me after getting rejected. How was the process at crunch base? Interviewing for data engineer.

      OP
      I didn’t make it past the manager screen so basically I just talked to recruiter and manager about projects I was working on / skills. I was interviewing for a data eng manager and they said they ended up hiring internally

    OP
    I also applied to 20 or so additional roles where I either was declined, received no response or had a call with the recruiter and felt it wasn’t a good fit
