- Create a program that gets nubmers from 1-100 and prints out multiples of 3, multiples of 5 and multiples of 3 and 5.
I was expecting some sort of sorting algorithm, i literally done this in like 30 secs, maybe previous candidates had tougher questions and therefore had to reduce the complexity.
The rest of the questions were some simple css related questions like write how you would make this tag so that the text appears bold and blue.
I then sat there thinking to myself, as a role as a software engineer shouldn't they be asking me things like describe the waterfall model, different types of testing e.g black box testing and white box testing. Test my UML skills such as, how would you draw a Use Case for this scenario or give me an example of a design pattern and were i would apply it. Give me a problem and explain how I would solve it.
In conclusion, I do believe that they weren't suiting the questions to the position.
Your talking about an undergraduate placement for a CS Degree, not a college or highschool placement.
Edit - The program they made me do is called the FizzBuzz Problem.
