CS 9 is a 1-unit course that acquaints you with the CS technical recruitment process. The instructors, who spent several years at Google as software engineers and interviewers, will cover the stages of the process - resumes, interviews, and more - and share from their firsthand experience. We'll also work through typical interview problems during the Thursday sessions.
Enrollment is through Axess, which also handles the waitlist. We do not have control over the waitlist ourselves.
Please see the syllabus for our specific policies regarding waitlisted students and auditors. Lecture recordings may be viewed on Canvas.
In general, we'll spend Tuesday sessions discussing various stages of the CS technical recruitment process, and Thursday sessions practicing interview problems.
