When asked a question, open a dialoge with the interviewer. Let them know what you are thinking. You might, for example, suggest a s low or partial solution (let them know that the solution is not ideal), mention some observations about the problem, or say any ideas you have that might lead to a solution. Often, interviewers will give hints if you appear to be stuck. Often, you will be asked to write a program during an interview. For some reason, interviewers usually have people write programs on a blackboard or on a sheet of paper rather than on a computer. It is good to get practice with writing code on the board in order to be prepared for this. Here is a list of ”do’s” and ”don’t’s” when doing a programming interview:
• Ask for clarification on a problem if you didn’t understand something or if there is any ambiguity
• Let the interviewer know what you are thinking
• Suggest multiple approaches to the problem
• Bounce ideas off the interviewer (such as ideas for data structures or algorithms)
• If you get stuck, don’t be afraid to let them know and politely ask for a hint
• Never give up! This says nothing good about your problem solving skills.
• Don’t just sit in silence while thinking. The interviewer has limited time to find out as much as possible about you, and not talking with them tells them nothing, except that you can sit there silently.
• If you already know the answer, don’t just blurt it out! They will suspect that you already knew the answer and didn’t tell them you’ve seen the question before. At least pretend to be thinking though the problem before you give the answer!
Being on demand as creative person is challenging in comparison to think ‘to be creative’. One has to develop helpful habits, and that’s about persistence. There is no single recipe for a problem right away, identifying the stumble, fears and working through them is rarely fun. If we look closely into this pattern, at some point, all creative tasks become work. The mundane work begins – this could be boring, no more fun, less interesting, ordinary, boring etc a necessary to bring an idea to the world becomes the reality.
Edison, Einstein, Jesus, Buddha and various others worked everyday but they all had a common core of willpower and commitment as their driving force. Many creators have outworked their peers. If we look back into history, they were not given divine power or were highly intellectual with education or genetics; the biggest difference between the greats and us was their dedication to their art and commitment. Each one of peers are talented, or more so, but twice as lazy. All failures happened because they were consistently given up before there were finished. We hardly know the one’s stood second or third or later, because the world cares about ideas that are shared.
During our training course we tend to ask questions about ideas – Do anyone wants to be entrepreneur? Atleast 50 percent and above raise their hands. My next question has shown me the facts about this idea – What have you done in the last few years towards the idea? Many hands drop down. That explains everything; ideas are lazy. Ideas can’t do anything on their own. One has to understand that, the routine or ordinary work is important to make the real idea, it’s not the issue about creativity at all.
Whenever an idea has formed in one’s head, it has to leave the brain to change the world – a journey towards hardwork and dedication.
Each one of us possesses everything necessary to be more creative. If we look into every amazing creative thing or idea such as – an automobile, an engine and wheels, a telephone, electricity and sound and others. If we look closely on all these great creative ideas, inventions, and theories are composed of other ideas. These tell us, to be creator instead of consumer, the existing ideas act as fuel for your mind. One should start looking at them combinations of ingredients waiting to be reused rather than as merely as objects or functional things. Increasing observations will help to increase creativeness.
Great tasty foods are combos, chef master learn to find, evaluate, and explore more combinations than other people. It has lead to increase the odds, by using reusable patterns to develop new ideas. For example, musicians throughout history have reused melodies, chord progression and even entire song structures. The Disney film ‘The Lion King’ is a retelling of Shakespare’s Hamlet. Shakespare was likely influenced by the early Greek tragedies. Any field of creative we can see that patterns of reuse and recombination everywhere. It’s an illusion when an author writes a book it appeared magically into writer hands from out of nowhere.
It doesn’t mean we steal and put one’s name on it. That’s theft, and fairly uncreative kind of theft at that. The goal here is to recognize how much inspiration, or recombine without breaking laws or violating trust. Because every field has its own rules and limitations, but creative fields are more liberal than you’d expect.
Why do we fail to observe as a creator rather than consumer? Stay tuned to read further, Good Day!
