Join a candid and exciting panel discussion of FAANG hiring managers on hiring practices and what they are looking for in a candidate. Come with your best questions, and receive direct answers from horse's mouth!

Do communication skills matter for an engineer? Why do they ask such hard technical questions? What happens in a hiring committee? What can you do to increase your chances of clearing the interviews and working with some of the most driven teams on the planet? What if one of the 5 interviews is bad - do I still get an offer? How many times can I try? Can I write on a computer instead of a whiteboard? What about management interviews? Does Github profile help? What about referrals?

The panel will be arranged and moderated by Soham and Ryan, founders of Interview Kickstart.
