Do: Research the company

Do: Understand the job requirements
In order to stand out in a technical interview, it’s essential to have a good understanding of the job requirements and what the company is looking for in a candidate. Take the time to read through the job description carefully, paying special attention to the skills and qualifications that the employer is seeking. Doing your research ahead of time can help you craft better answers during the interview and show that you are serious about the position. Additionally, you may even be able to bring up some ways that your past experience could be useful to the employer.

Do: Prepare examples of your work
One of the most important steps in preparing for a technical interview is gathering examples of your work to show off your skills. Prepare three or four examples that you can use to demonstrate your ability to complete tasks related to the job. Make sure that you’re able to explain the techniques and technologies used to complete each example. It can be helpful to bring along physical documents, such as code samples, or to have digital versions stored on a laptop or other device. Taking the time to properly prepare will help you feel confident during the interview process
