iOS interviews are stressful. The questions are tricky. You don't immediately know the answers, so you nervously rush to figure them out. It's almost like the interviewer is rooting for you to fail… or are they? As someone who has a ton of interviewing experience on both sides of the table, Alex has seen a lot of potentially good candidates get rejected because of simple mistakes. It's heartbreaking. Alex wants to help everyone unlock their potential as interview candidates and really be able to show off what they know. Most interviewing workshops seem to focus on the frameworks, algorithms, and trivia that you need to learn. Instead of focusing on memorizing, learn what your interviewer is actually thinking (and wants) and how to use that to win at interviewing.
