    "An Leetcode A Day Keeps Unemployment Away"

    I almost completely forget my "Interviewing Skills" - AKA solving leetcode style interview probelms, when I actually get a job. Those are arguably some of the toughest problems I've tackled in my career. Probably more so than any "real work" done on the job simply because of the nature of the pressurecooker interview setting.

    The best solution to that seems to be constantly drilling leetcode problems.

    • I’ve spent decades solving hard problems and there’s zero chance of me remembering any significant percentage of them.
