So I failed an interview with Apple at the non-coding first round.
Interviewer asked me what are the methods that every Object overrides, and turns out it is equal() hashcode() and toString(). And asked me what each of this does.
I program in Java with the current company for about a year, but rely mindlessly on frameworks to do the job that I dont even know the most basic things and what it does..
The inteviewer gave me a link to a Java textbook that I can study with, saying they need people more knowledgable in Java. I feel reallly ashamed that I am even hoping to do well in interviews when I don’t even know the basics of what I do everyday..
I did about 200 medium LC and feel okay with algorithms but I just feel so embarassed about this.. I feel so bad that the interviewer had to give me a link to buy a Java book..
That said, paste the link out?
