What type of questions will I be asked in 30 min technical interview?

Hello guys, I am in the final level of angular Bootcamp. I thought they would bring algorithms, but I believe 30 min is not much time, also prerequisites are so low that I can’t guess what they could ask me. If anyone had the same experience, could you share? Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.

P.S I am not lazy I searched a lot on google just it is my first interview so I want to be prepared

This is going to vary wildly, so we can only make guesses.

If I had to make a guess I’d say that this is probably an early technical interview with a tech lead and will mostly be questions about your experience. If it goes well, it might be followed by an hour or two of technical interviews with developers where you could be asked to read or write code or discuss certain language features.

If you look up the company on glassdoor, people may have described their interview. It may have changed, but you might get an idea. Some people may have recorded their interviews on youtube. But as ArialLeslie says, this is going to vary wildly.

Hello, thanks for the answer.

Well, if we consider this is a Bootcamp for absolute beginners, I doubt they will ask about experience. Also, in the HR interview, I told them I had no working experience in this field.
1st level was logic and js test;
2nd level Hr interview;
and on email, they said it is the final level, so there won’t be any more interviews,
So on the 3rd and final level, there is the technical interview and if I get past this, I am in.
As I said, my biggest concern is that 30 min is way too short for algorithms, so it won’t be like typical interviews. Could they ask only theory questions like what is javascript? How does for loop work, and so on?

The reason why I dont want theory questions is that I learned everything in English and this company is local, so it would be hard for me to translate everything in my native language, as some words dont have an exact translation in my native language.

Yes, I already checked that but it is a local company so there are no reviews or recordings. Still thanks for suggestion it may help in future

I don’t know, I learned on FCC and I went in with a little experience - I’d done some open source, volunteered for a little work with a non-profit, and did a few upwork jobs. In any case, you should be ready for the question.

Sure, but maybe look up some algorithm challenges in your language. Or translate some. And even if a word doesn’t have an “exact translation”, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have any translation. And a lot of technology terms are just borrowed words from English. In any case, you can get ready for it. And if push comes to shove, you can simply explain this to your interviewer - I would expect them to be sympathetic.

With regards to recordings, I didn’t mean for your company specifically, but that you could watch the interviews of other companies and be able to get an idea of some of the range of how an interview might happen.

They’re usually “do you have experience with this scenario/technology and gives some examples of when you’ve used it/how you’ve overcome the problem.” If the job listing mentions technologies if it’s a tech job they’ll usually ask you if you know how to use those things.
