This is the 9th chapter of our The Complete Guide to Google Interview Preparation series.
How to prepare non-technical questions in a coding interview is one of the most common questions I’ve received. Most people have no idea how to prepare for it or they even don’t know what type of questions will be asked.
Generally speaking, non-technical questions only account for a small part of the interview. However, it can “kill” you if interviewers catch any red flags. One example is the culture fit. The trend is that companies are paying more attentions to culture fit, which is true for both big companies like Google, Airbnb, and startups.
In this chapter, I’ll cover everything non-technical, including self-introduction, culture fit, ask questions to interviewers, etc.. These are not only tips that can help you be better prepared, but also a good practice to let you be aware if you are a good fit.
