This is the sixth chapter of our The Complete Guide to Google Interview Preparation series.
We’ll continue our discussion about system design interviews from last chapter. In this post, we’ll mainly focus on some practical on-site strategies.
Assuming you’ve already had a somewhat reasonable design (if not, check our previous chapter), the idea here is how to maximize the results in a system design interview. How to clearly communicate your approach is both a science and an art. Also, many candidates are too eager to show off their knowledge and tend to use some buzzwords that make no sense in the current scenario. We’ll address all these problems and red flags in this chapter.
