Why I failed my technical interview at Goldman Sachs

  1. Not doing proper research to understand what kind of questions are being asked at what level. I ended up assuming that I will be asked DSA only since that is what gets asked the most.
  2. Panicking and not reading the problem statement correctly wasted 27 minutes ( half ) of the interview.
  3. Jumping on to solve the question without letting the interviewer understand your thought process and approach to solve the question.
