Getting referrals is the best way to make sure human eyes will actually take a look at your resume.
You wouldn't want to get screened out by a computer and a referral will normally get you a superday interview.
I am going to reachout to my friends at tech companies to ask for referrals. They all get referal bonuses
if I get hired so they have incentives to help me get hired :).
To get read for my interviews I got the two books cracking the coding interview and the algorithm
design manual. I am also doing problems on leetcode to practice for the superdays. I already talked
to my mentor and he said once I think I am ready we can start having practice interviews.
