When should the students start job search? Where are the job opportunities? How to get prepared? What is the interview process like? These questions are obviously obvious for job seekers, but the answers are not so obvious, and this can make an immense difference in job hunting. In this talk, I will discuss these obvious questions with my industrial experiences as an interviewee and interviewer. Since the recruiting process becomes increasingly standardized for these major IT companies, making the answers more obvious could help you land the job that you want.
