My advice for the students who are going to appear for the interview of dream companies like MS, Adobe, Google, Amazon , DE Shaw, etc.
Focus on the computer fundamentals like DS, algorithms. A basic level of conceptual DBMS concept will be helpful. I was having a discussion last nite with Jaydeep Ray of ETCE 4th year. It seems some of the above mentioned companies dont alow students from non CS back ground. In that case I would suggest you guys to work in some startup or product development company for 1.5 to 2 yrs. This will give you good exposure of software development. Then apply to these companies. In the meantime keep horning your DS Algo and problem solving skills.
Also being an active member of DE Dhaw hiring team, I have got a decent idea about what exactly these companies look for. Would be happy to help you guys. Shoot your questions and I will try to clear your doubt with the best of my ability.
