Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Evelyn, an incredibly ambitious and determined future software engineer looking to land her first job at a Big Tech company. Evelyn had excellent questions about tech that I think anyone looking to enter the industry should be asking. Below are the questions and my responses. This post is a living, breathing blog post which I will be updating all the time.

At a high level, the main steps to getting into software engineering roles at a Big Tech company are:

- Apply or Get Referred To Positions
