35 Technical Interview Questions & Answers

Pass YOUR interview at the first attempt!

Here’s the FULL LIST of TECHNICAL INTERVIEW QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

Q1. What would you consider when describing something technical to a non-technical person?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“To begin with, I would assess their knowledge by asking questions to gauge where they were at from a technical perspective. For example, if I were giving a technical presentation, I would need to make sure I tailored the presentation to the person who had the least amount of knowledge in the group. I would make sure I did not use any technical jargon when describing things to them. I would use visual drawings and diagrams to explain technical subjects and I would use familiar objects, situations, and terminology to explain what it was I was trying to describe. For example, if I were to use everyday terminology that they understood, the information is more likely to be retained. I would take my time to describe everything to them more than once and I would ask quiz-based questions to make sure they fully understood my explanations. Finally, I would leave ample time for them to any ask questions they might have, and I would make the feel comfortable asking them.”

Q2. How do you keep your technical knowledge up to date?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“I spend quite a bit of time online outside of work so I would like to think my technical skills and knowledge are always up to date. I follow a few online forums including TechSpot and TechGuy. These are also useful if I want to dive deep into a particular subject. I also subscribe to TED.com and in particular, I will read the technology section at least two times a week. This is great for emerging trends and it gives me an insight into what is happening now and what is likely to happen over the next few years in my sector. I also make sure I undertake some form of technical development online course via the website Udemy.com at least once every quarter. For example, I recently completed an online SQL course to brush up my skills in this area and it only took me three days to complete. I take my professional development seriously and I will always make sure this is maintained moving forward.”
