Question: I just got laid off. The software engineer interviews are my biggest obstacle. What can I do to get past this?
My resume and cover letters are fine. My resume shows great experience from a well-known company.
However, I feel like I bypassed the interview barrier for that company. I got an internship there without any real interview and I impressed them enough that I got an offer without any further interviews needed (which I took).
But I was just the victim of a 25% RIF (Reduction in force).
What can I do to be more prepared for future software engineer interviews?
I have about a year of full-time experience and a year of internship experience.

So what problems do you have with interviews?
Remember, interview is partly a sales job (selling yourself). Appear confident, state how your prior experience will guide you in current job. Cite specific examples and how it will relate to the specific questions the interviewer will cite.
