How I Prepared for Technical Interviews – created and shared by Paola Terrazas

Paola says:

“I created Lady Engineering to share my advice, learnings and experience being a minority in tech but mostly to encourage and inspire more women to join STEM and break barriers. I recently shared a short post on LinkedIn about my incoming job at Facebook and the journey that got me there and I received many comments/emails/DMs asking how I prepared for and passed technical interviews.

So, I recently released a blog post that goes into detail about that and I have received very positive feedback! I’m glad it’s been able to help those who feel intimidated by the industry, especially minorities. It would be great to have that blog post featured on your newsletter so it can reach anyone who needs it, it can be very useful! Thank you!”
