    Same here. I brought a notebook. I had my examples written there. I crossed out the ones I used between rounds. I also got an offer.

      So they hire you by LPs? Sorry for the ignorance

      For Amazon, yeah seems so. I’ll find out. For not coding roles such things matter more than you think. Atleast they give a good insight of the person, based on what topics they chose to talk about as an example.

    I heard from my recruiter that she heard (from the interview discussion) that I brought copious notes. I did have 3 examples for each of the LCs but I also printed out the LinkedIn profiles of each interviewer so I could ask questions about their career relative to AWS. My recruiter gave me awesome detail before the interview: interviewer names, roles, and even the LPs each was targeting!!
    You do want to have all the examples pretty much memorized so you can go right into it. I choked on the last interview when I couldn't come upwith an example on how I improved a business process. I had a good example but I thought I could do better and spent time searching for it. I went back to the original example and was able to make it into a better story in the end but my choking probably did not go over well. I was tired... last interview of the day but probably one of the more important ones. I was given offer but downleveled and that might have contributed to that.

      I guess more than the notes, what matters is showing you put in some thought and effort into the interview.

    I think referring to them before each session starts is ok. I'd definitely bring them, not sure I'd sift through them during the actual interview though.

    Can you all provide some feedback on the tech interview as I have one approaching for the Senior Solutions Architect?
