A real candidate: a live Yandex interview


What does the first section of developer interviews at Yandex look like? How should you talk with the hiring manager? How should you answer when someone asks where you see yourself in five years? Why do they even ask that question at decent companies?

All those answers and more will be revealed at YaTalks. Kira Kuzmenko, CEO of NEWHR Global, a hiring manager, and the head of Yandex’s recruitment department, will conduct a live interview with a real candidate looking for a job as a backend developer.

Come learn about professional life hacks, hear how to pass interviews, and cheer on the candidate. If it goes well, the session will count as the first stage of the candidate’s Yandex interview process.
