I guess harder to tell if interviewed multiple times and got an offer or not.

Well I guess, make it "contacted or interviewed with Google and no offer"...
Somebody was saying "contacted but no interview and no offer".

      Also people who were rejected are more likely to skip the survey than those accepted.

    Nice, measuring P(offer | Blind) not P(offer).

      I was referring to not realizing that blind is an accurate representation of the general population

    I did 120 interviews there and the rate was 8%

      Pretty sure he meant that he conducted 120 interviews there.

      Yup. He probably meant he was the "interviewer".

    I can only say at this point, Blind users get a Google offer much more often than usual

      Are you also going to compare America's median salary with that of those on Blind? 😑

      seeing the $300k TC when people working in the supermarket is making $36k TC.

      Myself... somehow I often was hired as a contractor in the past years... only up to $95 / hour so my TC is really $190k... and not to mention the lost of insurance, holiday / vacation

    But most candidates don't even get an interview.

      well, I later learned Jarvis March and Graham scan, each with different time complexity and can be used "when you think it is one case" or the other. But then, even now I forgot all about it. I can only remember it if before the interview, I read about them and memorize them. Again... the memorization... but I guess you can say... as if you are a master of programming (the sifu), and you can verbose all solutions so eloquently.

      And then I have to memorize the Union-Find, the MergeSort, the QuickSort, the InsertionSort being good if the entries are almost in order and is O(n)... lots of memorization and it sounds so unreasonable. But I will do it if I don't have downpayment for my house and my wife and 2 kids need a house and tuition money.

      That's the spirit. Good luck, OP.

  • First time I interviewed I didn’t make it past the phone screen, second time I got hired. Do I count for 50%?

      What level did you interview for and YOE were you at the time? 1 year between attempts?
      Nov 24, 2019
    • First was out of college, second was a bit over 2 years later
      Nov 24, 2019
  • Better question - Googlers, how many people have you interviewed who have received offers?
