Hola! Recently I went for an interview for a DevOps/IT Engineer position at NYC. I was skeptical about my skill set and if I would be able to talk about ‘DevOps’ stuff and etc…
To my surprise, I learned more about myself during that interview. I was able to talk about and respond to about 95% of their questions with confidence. I underestimated myself. I know more that what I thought. This may happen to many. But, I suggest you go out there and apply to jobs with fancy and scary ‘Job titles’.
Go and interview with a mindset of a spy. Ask questions about the technology the company uses, daily tasks, team environment and etc..Don’t be afraid!
Below is the main key points I discussed during the interview with this high-end Advertising company. I’m going over each and reviewing/improving my skills. I hope they can help you also.
- SSH Keys.
- AWS: Concentrate on the main services only.
- Git basics.
- Basic commands to Linux (CentOS/Ubuntu).
- Apache virtual hosts.
- Automation scripts.
- Backup strategies/options/etc.
- Load balancer basics.
- Firewalls/Basic security.
- SSL certificates installs.
- SSO integration.
- OAuth, APIs, OpenID, etc.
Let me know if you have any questions in the comments section. Cheers!
